More minutes for the youngster?

Konrad de la Fuente joined in with first-team training on Saturday ahead of Barcelona’s La Liga clash with Levante on Sunday at the Camp Nou.

Ronald Koeman is short of wide options with Ansu Fati and Ousmane Dembele injured which suggests Konrad could get some minutes at the weekend.

Francisco Trincao is of course another option, although the Portugal international started against Juventus and was hooked at half-time after a poor showing.

Konrad has already enjoyed a couple of first-team appearances this season. The 19-year-old came off the bench against Dynamo Kiev and Ferencvaros in the Champions League.

Oscar Mingueza was also part of the session again and will be hoping to get the nod in defense after being benched in favor of the returning Ronald Araujo against Juventus.

Koeman will need to get his team selection spot on and get a result on Sunday with the Dutchman in the spotlight after defeats to Cadiz and Juve.
