Ousmane Dembele returned to training on Friday ahead of Sunday’s clash with Real Betis at the Camp Nou.

The Frenchman skipped Thursday’s session due to gastroenteritis but was back doing “specific recovery work,” according to the club.

Reports in Spain on Friday have focused on how Barcelona spent over an hour trying to contact him on Thursday before discovering he was at home with a bug. Make of that what you will.

Barcelona have one more session before Sunday’s game. They will train again on Saturday morning, hopefully Dembele will be fit enough to take his place in the squad.
