Barcelona manager Ernesto Valverde spoke about Lionel Messi ahead of the game. “Obviously Messi is a very important player for us and when he’s not playing we miss him. He’s the kind of player that when he’s not on the pitch the opponents know and it’s difficult for us. But we’ve obviously played good games without him. He’s obviously the best player in the world and you notice when he’s not playing.” The match will begin at 12.30 am IST.
