Barcelona finally have two more players returning to training.

FC Barcelona had to endure a bit of a crisis last week, but things began to change after Sunday’s 3-0 win over Leonte.

Ansu Fati’s 11-month return has boosted morale at Camp Nine, and the mood is even better with the presence of two other players in training. Monday morning Brand Jordi Alba and Pedri have both been spotted with the squad, and their participation in the group session indicates that they will both be available to play in midweek.

Barcelona will face Benfica in their second group stage match in the UEFA Champions League. This match must be won if Ronald Koeman wants his players to overcome a 3-0 defeat at the hands of Bayern Munich in their opening match.

There is another training session on Tuesday, after which Koeman will be able to determine how fit the players are and if any of them can make a significant contribution on Wednesday.
