Barcelona coach Valverde: Messi 100% fit

Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde says there's no fitness concerns for Leo Messi after their 0-0 draw with Athletic Bilbao.

Barcelona take on Lyon in the Champions League on 19 February shortly after a league game against Real Valladolid, before two Clasicos in succession either side of the end of February.

"He's at one hundred percent, he played that way," he explained in his post-match press conference.

"Leo is fine.

"We've had problems with him, but if he's played then it's because he was totally ready to."
