BARCELONA, Spain — Lionel Messi is set to return for Barcelona after missing two friendlies with Argentina during the international break.

A knock on his right foot kept Messi from playing in friendlies against Ecuador and El Salvador held in the United States last week.

Barcelona coach Luis Enrique says Messi "is doing well. The hit is still there but he has recovered from it."

Luis Enrique has included Messi in Barcelona's squad for its away game at Celta Vigo on Sunday.

Messi leads the Spanish league with 32 goals in 28 games and has helped Barcelona establish a four-point lead.
