Arthur and Jasper Cillessen both joined in training with Barcelona ahead of Wednesday’s Copa del Rey semi-final against Real Madrid.

The two have both been out for a little while with injury but are closing in on a return to first-team action.

Also included in the session were Barca B youngsters Iñaki Peña, Chumi, Juan Miranda and Riqui Puig.

Ernesto Valverde said before Saturday’s win over Sevilla that he expected Arthur back this week, but it remains to be seen if he’ll be fit in time for Wednesday’s clash or whether Saturday’s La Liga game against Real Madrid is a more realistic target.
