Lionel Messi Will Start For Barcelona Against Roma After Injury Scare

This could be a very one-sided contest with that man Lionel Messi ready to pounce, says Jamie Pacheco.

My first idol was Ronaldinho when he was at Barcelona. We've been showing a lot of quality to our attacking game and we're improving in defence.

Injury worry Sergio Busquets: "He trained yesterday and was able to take part in a great deal of the session".

"We face this challenge with serenity and tranquility; we know that Barcelona is one of the strongest teams in Europe but we know that we can do well against them too".

AS Roma, on the other hand, have never made it past the quarter-final stage of Europe's elite competition.

Barça were 2-0 down at Sevilla, thanks to goals from the home side's South Americans Franco Vazquez and Luis Muriel, and in deep trouble when Messi entered as a substitute on 57 minutes.

However, the player has admitted that although the clause is something he is aware of, he is concentrating all his efforts on the pitch rather than off it.

Barcelona, in the last eight for the 11th consecutive season, need to be cautious. The former hobbled off in that weekend draw while Turkish star Under missed the game entirely after picking up an injury on international duty.

Excluding qualifiers, Roma have won just one of their last 13 Champions League away games (2-1 vs FK Qarabag in September), losing seven and drawing five. All stats courtesy of Opta.

"But we also know that Barca will attack". Tomorrow, more than ever, we have to stick together as a team'.

The hosts are huge favourites to win, and they are available at their best odds of ¼ at Betfred. But at least the more refined skills of Denis might at least now figure in his thinking. Everyone wants to play in these types of games.

Losing on Wednesday is almost expected.

"I really hope the Camp Nou fans turn out in huge numbers to back us against Roma and roar us on like they did against Chelsea", the manager said. "It will be a totally different match".

Jose Mourinho is already planning his summer overhaul of the Manchester United squad, monitoring two world-class defenders, one of which belonging to Juventus.

Lionel Messi has reportedly warned Barcelona not to lose Croatia midfielder Ivan Rakitic this summer. Those are things that stay with you for the rest of your life.
