Lionel Messi cleared to play Sunday
Barcelona's team doctors have cleared Lionel Messi to play in the club's La Liga opener against Levante.
Barcelona says Messi has recovered from a strained muscle in his left leg from last weekend and will take the field on Sunday.
The Argentina forward missed several games at the end of last season with a nagging right hamstring injury.
Cesc Fabregas and Pedro have also recovered from injury in time to play for defending champions Barcelona.
