Leo Messi made his return at the Santiago Bernabéu after injury / MIGUEL RUIZ - FCB

Leo Messi returned to action 56 days after getting injured against Las Palmas at Camp Nou. The Argentine recovered during the international break from his knee ligament tear and made his comeback on Saturday against Real Madrid at the Santiago Bernabéu, receiving the all-clear shortly before the team travelled to the capital.

He started the match on the bench but replaced Ivan Rakitic in the second half, helping Barça further extend their lead in what was a historic 4-0 victory. Take a look at Messi’s journey this week, from the team’s departure from Barcelona right to the point where he entered the match in the 56th minute.
