Real Madrid coach Santiago Solari hopes FC Barcelona captain Lionel Messi is fit to face his side in Wednesday's Copa del Rey semi-final first leg for the good of the game.

Messi picked up a thigh injury during Barça's 2-2- draw with Valencia on Saturday night, but played through the pain to complete the 90 minutes. "I cannot guess anything but we imagine that it can't be too bad".

"I don't exactly what it is".

"We'll wait to see what the doctors say, then evaluate things based on that".

Asked at the prematch news conference in Madrid whether he wanted his fellow Argentine to be available for Wednesday's game, Solari said it would be best for the spectacle for Messi to feature.

"We have to wait until tomorrow to do the tests to see how he is, like the other players", Valverde said.

Kevin Gameiro gave Valencia the lead on 24 minutes before Dani Parejo doubled the advantage from the penalty spot after Sergi Roberto bundled over Daniel Wass in the area.

Messi pulled one back before the break and levelled the scoring with a carefully placed shot from outside the box in the second half.

Messi had to be treated on the sidelines shortly after scoring his second goal but was able to come back on and finish the game.

Both teams had enjoyed remarkable comebacks during the week to reach the Copa del Rey semifinals, with Barca thrashing Sevilla 6-1 to win 8-3 on aggregate and Valencia seeing off Getafe 3-1 for a 3-2 aggregate win with two goals in stoppage time.

In the other semi-final, Valencia travel to Real Betis on Thursday, who will host the final at the Benito Villamarín Stadium in Seville.
