Barça's internationals have already returned from the break and now it's time to prepare for the game against Atlético de Madrid. In training this Thursday, Koeman could count on all his internationals except Messi, De Jong and Pjanic
The stop of selections has not left good news for practically any team of the world and the FC Barcelona has not been an exception. The group barcelonista has lost by injury to Sergio Busquets, that lesionó in the second party of Spain in front of Switzerland and will not be able to be in the complicated meeting of this Saturday to the 21:00 hours against the Athletic of Madrid.
The one of Badia, luckily, has been the only drop that has left this 'break' international and this Thursday have returned all the culés that went to play with his countries. Ronald Koeman could see to almost all in the training of in the afternoon in which the Dutch began to prepare the crash in front of the colchoneros. The technician had Francisco Trincao, Antoine Griezmann, Clément Lenglet, Sergiño Dest, Sergi Roberto, Pedri and the canterano Konrad de la Fuente.
In the session of this Thursday also could have been Frenkie of Jong, Miralem Pjanic and Leo Messi, but the technical body preferred to give them rest by distinct reasons. By his part, the rosarino landed in Barcelona this Wednesday in the afternoon in The Prat in a very long flight from Lima. On the other hand, so much the bosnio like the Dutch had split this Wednesday and arrived to the City Condal the Thursday.
All they have had to happen the proofs PCR in his aterrrizaje to Barcelona, by what without the same any could work to the orders of Koeman. Besides, because of the tiredness preferred not to force them. The tests will be smart for this Friday and that will be the only training that the three footballers make before the decisive commitment in front of the Athletic.
On the other hand, Martin Braithwaite, that played this Wednesday with Denmark in front of Belgium, neither could train beside the rest of his mates, but yes made individual work. In other circumstances, the Nordic could have had options in front of the Atleti, but arrives so tired like Messi and the rest of international of the Barça, by what will be acting in Wanda Metropolitan.
Coutinho Is recovered and could be headline in Wanda
The one who himself could form part of the eleven headline is Philippe Coutinho, that trained with normality and seems to be entirely recovered of his injury. The Brazilian was key for Koeman until lesionó and was giving a big level, by what his turn is a very good news for the group. If it does not happen at all rare, the one of Rio de Janeiro could be in the mediapunta in the crash against the rojiblancos.
