According to TyC Sports, Lionel Messi will be called up but will only play in the game in Madrid and not travel to Morocco. 

Scaloni is anxious that the No.10 rejoins the squad with these being the last friendly games ahead of the 2019 Copa America which starts in Brazil in June despite his club facing some key games in the Champions League and the player complaining of groin problems in recent weeks.
