Barcelona's Lionel Messi reportedly misses training due to a foot injury, but the forward is expected to be fit for Friday's showdown with Bayern Munich.

Barcelona talisman Lionel Messi was reportedly forced to sit out training on Sunday owing to the foot injury he sustained in the Champions League last-16 second-leg victory over Napoli.

The six-time Ballon d'Or winner scored Barcelona's second goal on the night - a terrific solo effort - as Quique Setien's men progressed to the quarter finals of Europe's elite competition.

Messi suffered a foot injury following a clash with Kalidou Koulibaly, but the Barca captain still managed the full 90 minutes in the victory at Camp Nou.

Nevertheless, Spanish outlet Cope reports that the Argentine did not train on Sunday, but Messi's absence was more precautionary than anything else.

Barca will now face Bayern Munich in the last eight of the competition on Friday, and the report claims that Messi is expected to play a part and aid Barca's efforts of reaching the semi finals.

Messi is yet to agree terms over a new deal at Camp Nou, though, with his current contract in Catalonia set to expire next summer.
