There was mixed news from the Barcelona training ground after Friday’s session ahead of the weekend’s visit from Athletic in La Liga.

Sergi Roberto took part in the session and left feeling good which suggests he will get the medical green light before the match, according to AS.

The 28-year-old has not featured since picking up a thigh injury in November but could be set to make his first appearance of 2021.

Roberto’s chances of starting have also increased as Sergino Dest did not train with the group and instead did work in the gym.

The right-back is struggling to shake off a thigh injury and looks set to miss out again at the weekend.

Oscar Mingueza has been filling in at right-back but could make way for Roberto, while there will also be changes in midfield as Sergio Busquets misses out through suspension.
