Barcelona held their first training session of the week on Monday as they turned their attentions to Saturday’s La Liga clash at Eibar.

There was some good news on the injury front too as both Samuel Umtiti and Junior Firpo took part after recovering from injury.

Umtiti has been out since picking up a foot injury with France on the last international break, while Junior has been sidelined with a muscle problem.

The return of the two players is well timed with Barcelona set to be without some key players for Saturday’s match.

Gerard Pique, Ronald Araujo and Ousmane Dembele are all out of the trip to Ipurua due to suspension.
