Barca's captain and all-time top scorer was initially ruled out for approximately three weeks after sustaining the injury against Sevilla on October 20, although he returned to training last week.

"He could be available, but we have to wait, let's see how he feels about his safety".

He was among the travelling party that flew to Milan on Monday and trained at the San Siro with his teammates later in the day - although he does not yet have the green light from Barca's medical team to return to competitive action.

Coach Ernesto Valverde said on Friday he had not ruled Messi out of playing but was concerned about rushing him back. Of course it's necessary to get Messi back as soon as possible. One is that he plays from the start, another that he comes on.

Since losing Messi, Barca have won four matches in succession across all competitions, including a 5-1 Clasico demolition of Real Madrid.

"There are three or four options, but we will not take risks [with Messi]".

And they will qualify as Group B winners with victory on Tuesday.

They also beat Inter 2-0 in the reverse fixture at the Nou Camp without Messi.

"To already be in this situation in the fourth game of the group is great", Valverde added.

"We have to give everything to win but we can't forget that they are favourites". "But we must credit Rayo Vallecano, they need points and were excellent, they brought the game to us and were very impressive". We know we have to improve, but the important thing is the goal difference.
