Messi trains ahead of sevilla – Barcelona

Lionel Messi remains a doubt for Barcelonaa��s LaLiga trip to Sevilla on Saturday after he was unable to play a full part in Thursdaya��s training session.

The club confirmed in a statement that Messi trained on Thursday, but only for part of the session.

There was no mention of goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen, though, who missed Germanya��s defeat to Brazil with a knee problem.

a�?The session took place on the Tito Vilanova pitch, with Leo Messi working with the group for part of the session and Barca Ba��s [Carles] Alena making up the numbers,a�? the club said.
