Gerard Piqué will be available for the ‘Clásico’ on Sunday. The Barcelona CB trained normally on Friday after overcoming the niggle he suffered against Napoli and everything points to Setién having him available for the match against Real Madrid at the Santiago Bernabéu.
Good news for Barcelona and Quique Setién. Gerard Piqué completed training normally on Friday and everything points to the CB being ready for the ‘Clásico’ against Real Madrid at the Santiago Bernabéu.
The Barca CB overcame the discomfort he felt against Napoli in the Champions League on Tuesday, and that set off the alarm bells for a Barcelona short of players.
‘RAC1’ already signaled that it was all just a scare. In the end, Piqué has recovered on time and will be able to play alongside Umtiti or Lenglet. Setién has now assured himself of a key defensive player with Jordi Alba and Sergi Roberto already out due to injury.
It must be noted that the LB was part of the team’s training session, but still hasn’t recovered from the adductor injury in the right leg and will not make the match against Real Madrid.
In Friday’s session, the youth team players Morer, Araújo, Akieme, Monchu, Collado and the usuals Riqui Puig and Ansu Fati also took part.
