However, Lloris believes that the Argentinean maestro will feature on Tuesday. In his interview with Sky Sports, the French captain stated, "I think it is always a special game to play against Barcelona at the Nou Camp. It is a special place, it is true we will be playing against one of the best players in history."

He continued, "It will not be easy but I think the most important thing is to believe in our chance to go through. We will play 100 per cent with the belief that we can do it."
The World Cup winner then went on to stated, "I think it is difficult to stop a player like Leo Messi but if we can do it is only as a team. We will need a strong performance, individually obviously, but mainly as a team."
