The Argentine footballer picked up an unfortunate hamstring injury in a September La Liga clash against Almeria that kept him off the field for about three months. Since returning to Camp Nou in the past few weeks, he has been struggling to find his old form on the pitch.
His usual goal-scoring reputation was limited to just one goal in five games before he finally managed a brace against Italian opponents A.C Milan on Wednesday.
The recent performance has him assured that he will slowly find his rhythm and leave his injury woes behind him.
"This time there have been two injuries really close together and that kind of impact you do notice," Messi enthused.
"But I'm definitely getting past it and I'm happy with my form. I'm calm about the recuperation from injury. I'm getting my rhythm back bit by bit.
"I think it really helps to have 90 minutes, then another 90 minutes, back to back so that I can gradually re-establish the tempo and the form I had before the injury. It just helps physically."
The award winning striker recounts the game and insists that Barcelona were far superior to the side from San Siro.
"Right from the start I thought we played well; we were the main protagonists, pretty much as we normally are.
"The fact that we conceded just before the break did make things just a touch more complicated but from that point onwards we were the superior side again."
The win in the Group H clash means that the Catalans book their ticket to the final knockout stages of the competition with 10 points in the bag from four games played.
