Trainer Ronald Koeman can set up Lionel Messi again at FC Barcelona this weekend.

The star player has recovered from a minor injury.

The club also announced that Philippe Coutinho, who suffered a serious knee injury earlier this week, will be sidelined for about three months.

Messi missed Tuesday's home game against Eibar.

The 33-year-old Argentinian saw from the stands of the empty Camp Nou that his team drew a disappointing 1-1.

"He has fully recovered. He is looking forward to playing again and that is of course important for us", 57-year-old Koeman said on Saturday during his press talk in preparation for Sunday's game with last-ditch Huesca.

The former national coach of Orange does not expect an easy match.

"Huesca has gotten few goals at home, so we have been warned. We will have to improve."

Coutinho fell out against Eibar, after which Barcelona announced on Wednesday that the damage to his knee is considerable.

The Brazilian playmaker has to watch for about three months, that is the expectation now that he has had surgery.

The match between Huesca and Barcelona starts on Sunday at 9 p.m.

Koeman's team can use a victory, because after fifteen games, the top club is only sixth in La Liga.
