Date of return Lionel Messi, Barcelona v Real Betis



LIONEL Messi is back in the Barcelona squad for the La Liga Spanish match against Real Betis.

But there is no Ousmane Dembele following reports of disciplinary trouble related to French.

Messi has lost almost three weeks of action after having suffered a borken arm but was back in the training this week and was named Ernesto Valverde's 19-person squad for Sunday home.

Dembele was notable after his absence after reports that failed to show for training on Thursday, without informing the club that he was suffering from gastroenteritis. "It's not a penalty," said Valverde for a 21-year-old absence. "Everyone can interpret it as they wish." Dembele's latest indiscretion has led to further speculation over the long-term future of the $ 105 million ($ A165 million) signing from Borussia Dortmund but Valverde said he was still keen to help achieve his potential. "Dembele's talent is hard to find and we need to help him take advantage of it," he said.
