Barcelona: Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola expects forward Lionel Messi to overcome fatigue and play against Zaragoza, while Pedro Rodriguez should also return from injury for Saturday's match.
Messi only arrived Thursday from a lengthy spell of international duty with Argentina and even Guardiola was surprised by how motivated the midfielder was to play.
"Messi is in playing condition," Guardiola said. "He likes to take part, his life is football. So as long as he wants to play I'll keep putting him in."
