Lionel Messi took just 25 minutes to score twice at the Nou Camp on Wednesday as he made a goalscoring return to action after almost two months out injured. 'His career is like a film script' said coach Tata Martino after the 4-0 win.
The four-time Ballon d’Or winner had been sidelined for 50 days and spent one month recuperating in Argentina but it was as if he had never been away while gliding past Getafe defenders with a double that all but assures Barcelona go into the Cup quarter-finals.
Messi would not be drawn afterwards on whether he will now start Saturday’s title crunch against Atletico Madrid. 'We still have to take things bit by bit. I feel strong physically and of course I always want to play. I have missed playing,' he told Barça TV.
