Barcelona resumes La Liga title push, but the big question is, will Lionel Messi play Saturday?

Will Lionel Messi play this weekend?

That is the question on all Barcelona fans’ minds, because this team has been a shell of itself when the Ballon D’Or winner has been out of the lineup this season.

Barcelona is leading La Liga by two points, and any slip up down the stretch could prove costly.

But while the Blaugrana have struggled at times this season, I don’t see them coming out of the break and losing against a team in the bottom three of the table.

Look for Barcelona to put all the pressure back on Real Madrid Sunday.
