Messi wait for Barca

“Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola is still sweating on the fitness of Lionel Messi ahead of Sunday night’s El Clasico with Real Madrid, but believes his side can win with or without the Argentina winger. Messi picked up a thigh injury in last weekend’s 1-1 draw at Athletic Bilbao and was missing as Barca beat Inter Milan 2-0 in the Champions League on Tuesday night.” (ESPN)

The dawn of El Derbi
“The Saturday before a ‘clasico’ in Barcelona is like Christmas Eve. And it’s not just the kids who are getting overly excited. The first meeting of the season between Barca and their arch-rivals Real Madrid takes place at the magnificently imposing Camp Nou on Sunday and the city has been almost entirely consumed by the affair for days.” (BBC)
