And Spalletti feels that the prospect of facing the Catalan giants and Messi is a great test for his side, who sit second in the group - just three points off Barcelona at the top - and has called on his players to show their quality against a top-class opponent.

Messi, 31, has not played since breaking a bone in his arm in the win over Sevilla on October 20.

Spalletti added: "He's a complete player, he needs to be evaluated carefully because he's had injuries, he can also be a defensive midfielder, that is where he started".

Barca have won all four of their matches without the talismanic Argentine, with a 2-0 victory over Inter and the 5-1 demolition of Real Madrid the standout results. But wins, in any form, can not be overlooked.

The reigning Spanish champions scored the first goal in the 10th minute through Luis Suarez who was assisted by left back Jordi Alba. After six games without a goal, he has now hit six in his last four.

Spalletti said it would not make much difference if Lionel Messi was passed fit to play for Barca. "We know they will score many goals together again". During the first game, we did not manage to keep the ball well enough to turn the game around. "Under the new coach I'm not being picked but I'm working on it".

"Maybe more aggresive because they're at home".

Asked about the prospect of him playing, Valverde stated: "We'll see how he will be".

Rayo Vallecano fans were in good mood during the last seven minutes of the game thinking their team would record an emphatic win over Barcelona. Finally, Suarez scored his second and Barcelona's victor in the dying seconds of the match to rescue the full three points for the Catalan giants.
