Lionel Messi named on the bench as Barcelona and Borussia Dortmund reveal line ups

Barcelona head coach Ernesto Valverde has named Lionel Messi on the bench after returning from injury in the clash against Borussia Dortmund in a 10 PM (EAT) kick-off at the Signal Iduna Park.

Fresh from scoring his brace off the bench against Valencia last weekend, Luis Saurez has been trusted with a starting berth against Dortmund.

Messi could be in line to make his first appearance this season after suffering an injury on the first day of training following his return to pre-season. Antoine Griezmann and teenage sensation Ansu Fati have also been handed starts.
