Barcelona were without Arturo Vidal for training on Saturday morning as they prepare for their La Liga clash against Levante on Sunday night.

The midfielder did specific work in the gym and did not join the session with the rest of the squad which suggests he may be a doubt for tomorrow’s game.

Quique Setien was asked about Vidal in his pre-match presser and said that the Chilean only has a knock but he does not want to take risks with any of his players.

Vidal has been an influential player this season but only five of his 17 La Liga appearances have been as a starter.

Ousmane Dembele trained again but is not fit enough to play tomorrow, while Barca B youngsters Inaki Pena, Ronaldo Araujo, Saverio, Alex Collado, Rey Manaj and Riqui Puig were also involved.
