Messi has fully recovered from his hamstring injury at Barcelona.
"It's good for Barcelona and for la Liga. For us, it increases the competition because Barcelona is a different team with Messi. They've done very well without him and they'll do well with him. We're looking to make progress on the points table and we will if we win on Sunday because I don't think Barcelona and Atlético will win," said Ancelotti.
