The mercurial Argentine forward has been out since he injured his hamstring in the 4-1 win over Real Betis on the 10th November.
The 26 year old returned to training this week and had set to feature on Sunday but a top of the table clash with Atletico Madrid looming next weekend his boss Tito Martino had decided not to risk the forward.
“In my view Messi is full of desire, I think he is in very good shape physically and has the look of a killer,” said Martino.
“He needs to gain more rhythm from training with his teammates and then in competitive action, but he is doing very well.”
Martino is however set to welcome back Victor Valdes following a calf strain with the Spanish star set to resume his place in goal instead of Jose Pinto.
Sergio Busquets is set to miss out through suspension.
Barcelona will head into the game full of confidence following a strong finish to 2013. The club have won their last five games in all competitions scoring 20 goals in the process and conceding just 5.
In the absence of Messi, Pedro has stepped up to the table scoring a hat-trick in their last outing, a 5-2 win over Grenada.
Martino’s men have won all their home games so far this season racking up 8 win in succession with 27 goals scored and just 6 conceded.
Elche meanwhile will be without Damien Suarez and Coro for the game with their pair both suspended. The club are currently 14th in the table and have lost their last three games, their most recent defeat coming in a 1-0 loss to Malaga at home.
The club have not won a La Liga game since a 2-1 win over Valencia in November and have not taken a point at the Nou Camp since their first inaugural season in the top flight in 1989.
Despite the record books appearing to be against them Elche boss Fran Escriba is maintaining a positive approach to the game despite the stern challenge that awaits.
“We have to be brave and try to find the goal because it is difficult to think that they (Barcelona) will not score,” he said.
