Lionel Messi is set to return from a two-month injury lay-off after being cleared by Barcelona’s team doctors and included in its squad for the Copa del Rey match against Getafe on Wednesday.

Messi hasn’t played since tearing his left hamstring in November, his fourth leg injury in 2013. He returned to training with Barcelona last week after recovering in Argentina.

Barcelona lost its only two games of the season without Messi, but it has managed to hold onto a share of the Spanish league lead with Atletico Madrid.
