Report: Lionel Messi, Neymar to start against Atletico Madrid

A report claims that Barcelona duo Lionel Messi and Neymar will both start in the second leg of the Spanish Super Cup against Atletico Madrid on Wednesday.

Lionel Messi and Neymar are both expected to start when Barcelona welcome Atletico Madrid to the Camp Nou for the second leg of the Spanish Super Cup on Wednesday.

The duo are yet to start a competitive match together this season, but according to Mundo Deportivo, Gerardo Martino will select the South American pair from the outset.

Messi had been a doubt after suffering a bruised thigh in the first leg – which ended 1-1 – last week, but he has returned to training this week and is therefore expected to start.

Meanwhile Neymar, who joined from Santos in the summer, has so far featured from the bench in his first three competitive appearances for the Spanish champions.
