Barcelona have been handed some good news on the injury front with Ansu Fati, Frenkie de Jong and Sergi Roberto all taking part in Sunday’s recovery session at the Ciutat Esportiva.
The trio all joined the group and it’s hoped they may be available for Tuesday’s Champions League clash against Dynamo Kiev in Ukraine.
Barca will train again on Monday morning before the club’s pre-match press conference where we might get more of an idea of who will be available.
Ousmane Dembele also seems close to getting the green light to play. It had been expected he would make the squad for Alaves but he missed out once again.

However, there will be no Gerard Pique with Barca confirming that the defender has a calf strain and is set for a spell on the sidelines.
“Tests this morning confirmed first-team player Gerard Piqué has a right calf strain and will be out for the forseeable future,” read a club statement.
Sergio Aguero will also miss the trip to Ukraine. The striker remains in hospital after being taken off against Alaves and sent to hospital for a cardiac tests.
