Barca star Messi ill ahead of Champions League clash with Chelsea

Barcelona talisman Lionel Messi has been ill ahead of his side’s clash with Chelsea but will be fit to play in the big game.

Messi was laid low by a stomach upset at the weekend but was able to train with his team-mates at the Nou Camp on Monday.

Chelsea, meanwhile, will assess Didier Drogba before interim boss Roberto Di Matteo names his team for the Champions League semi-final second leg.

Drogba, who scored against Barca in last week’s first leg, has been nursing a knee problem.
