Barcelona coach Valverde coy over Messi making Inter Milan clash

Messi named in Barcelona squad for Inter clash

Spalletti is in the second season of a rebuilding job at Inter, a club that seems to have been in perpetual transition since winning a Champions League, Serie A and Coppa Italia treble under Jose Mourinho in 2010.

"We play with a certain amount of risk, as Barca have always done, but we also want the opposition not to score many", Valverde said when asked if he was concerned about the amount of chances his side are giving up.

Barca scored twice in the last three minutes to clinch a dramatic 3-2 win away at Rayo Vallecano yesterday.

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

However, Inter coach Luciano Spalletti, whose side lost 2-0 at Camp Nou two weeks ago, acknowledged that the La Liga side remain a much more complete outfit with Messi than without him.

Speaking to the press yesterday, right-back Roberto said: "Without Leo we aren't so strong, but we have shown that we are a great team".

Three Girl Scouts picking up litter killed in 'tragic and senseless' hit-and-run
The reason for the crash is not clear and Mr Sokup said Treu had been approaching a hill and there were no blind spots. Three young Girl Scouts and a mom were killed Saturday while cleaning garbage out of a ditch in Lake Hallie.

"He's happy to be with us, and we're happy to have him here in Milan".

"We were scarred by his absence and it's normal that it affected a team like ours".

The defending champions got to the scoresheet when Luis Suarez scored from Jordi Alba's cutback eleven minutes into the match.

"Against Inter in Milan we must follow the line we did against Real Madrid or Inter at home".

Barca lead the group with nine points from three games followed by Inter on six while PSV Eindhoven and Tottenham have one point each.

"But, in the end, we won by playing doing something different". We are calm, as we are first in La Liga and our Champions League group, but we have to improve in defence. "We'll know more after training", added the Inter coach.
