UEFA Champions League

Jordi Alba Back To Full Fitness And The Two Other Things I Observed From Barcelona Training Today.

Barcelona players resumed training today after having a woeful performance in the UEFA Champions League this week. The Catalans suffered their 2nd straight defeat in the competition this season as they were beaten 3-0 by Benfica at the Estadio de Luz.

Barcelona will return to La Liga action tomorrow when they travel to face league rivals Atletico Madrid at the Wanda Metropolitano Stadium. The Spanish side will be hoping for victory when they face a very difficult opponent in Atletico Madrid.

Well, in today's article I will be sharing the three things I observed from Barcelona's training session so kindly stay tuned.

1, Jordi Alba Returns To Full Fitness.

Jordi Alba sustained a serious hamstring injury against Bayern Munich in the UEFA Champions League some weeks ago as he missed Barcelona's last three matches in all competitions. The Spanish Wing-Back returned to training today looking sharp and ready for Barcelona's next fixture. The 32-year-old was named in Barcelona's squad list to face Atletico Madrid.

2, Pedri's Absence From Training.

Pedri Gonzalez sustained another injury in Barcelona's last UEFA Champions League fixture against Benfica. The Spanish International will be out of football action for 2-3 weeks after picking up a left-leg quadriceps injury. The 18-year-old was absent from Barcelona training session today.

3, Memphis Depay And Ansu Fati Train Vigorously For Atletico Madrid's Clash.

Memphis Depay and Ansu Fati were both spotted in training today for Barcelona as they did some exercises to maintain full fitness. Both players are the only hope Barcelona currently have as they trained vigorously for Atletico Madrid's clash tomorrow.
