Leo Messi is on the verge of entering the call for the final of the Super Cup against Athletic. The Argentine forward, who finished Saturday’s session with good feelings, it is currently being tested at the Benito Villamarín stadium. This is the last test before deciding whether or not he can play the final tonight. After finishing the morning session, Messi will meet with the technicians and doctors to agree on a decisionAlthough the player will have the last word, because nobody better than he knows how to read his body and the risk limit he can assume.
In principle, if there are no last minute surprises, Everything indicates that he will be one of the twenty footballers that Ronald Koeman will call up for the match against Athletic. From here, the big question, which will be cleared about an hour and a half before the game, is whether he will participate from the start or will he start the game from the bench.
In this decision, multiple factors must be evaluated, above all, the risk of relapse is of concern. In this sense, doctors are being very cautious and are in favor of a more conservative solution, that is, that the player starts on the bench and jumps onto the pitch as needed and demand of the party. And it is that despite the fact that the injury is very minor –an elongation in the biceps femoris of the left leg-, they consider that the player reaches the final very fair, so any setback could lead to serious consequences in the form of injury, and more thinking that the first leg of the Champions League round of 16 against PSG is getting closer every day.
But it is also true that if the player’s feelings are good and he feels with full confidence, his starting lineup would be an overdose of confidence for the team in order to take the first title of the season.
Thus, the ‘suspense Messi’ will still remain for the next few hours. At approximately 7:30 p.m. Ronald Koeman plans to clear up the great unknown.
