Though five-time Ballon d'Or winner Lionel Messi missed last weekend's La Liga game for FC Barcelona with his second injury of the season, as The Inquisitr reports, the fact that Coach Ernesto Valverde has quickly put Messi back into the squad shows how serious the five-time UEFA Champions League champions are taking Wednesday's Group F match against a red-hot Inter Milan. A seemingly unthinkable loss at the Camp Nou would leave Barca with just one point after two matches in this season's Champion League. Yet, Inter come in with only one point of their own but with a perfect 6-0 domestic record.
That unblemished mark leaves Inter as one of only two teams in Europe's five major leagues without a loss or draw, along with English leaders Liverpool, and they will try to take that momentum to Catalonia in the match that will stream live on Wednesday.

Inter and Barca have a significant history in the Champions League.

As for Messi, he said in a pre-match press conference that the season has been an adjustment for him, but that he is reasonably satisfied with his performance when he's been on the field, according to Newsweek.
"I feel like I'm improving every game," Messi said. "I can do better but I just arrived. I work for the team and if I can score or assist, even better."
