The whole model successfully passes the PCR test


This Tuesday’s session was marked by the PCR test that the model was sent on Monday and passed successfully, as no positive results were found. This means Ronald Koeman you can count on all the troops available to travel to Turin ahead of Wednesday’s match against Juventus. Total, twenty first team players, given that the injured Ter Stegen, Coutinho and Umtiti must be added to Gerard Piqué, who was suspended.

The rest of the players, including the Brazilian Matheus Fernandes, who has not yet called up this season, are at Koeman’s disposal to be part of the Blaugrana expedition that will leave this afternoon for Italy.

Clement Lenglet reappeared in the session on Tuesday, who did not train on Monday doing preventive work in the gym. The involuntary protagonist of the Classica was the French central after provoking a controversial penalty against Sergio Ramos for taking inside the area. And it is that in the images before the taking, it is clearly seen how Lenglet is the object of a foul by the Madrid captain, making the linesman participate in the foul to the referee, who has decided to ignore the advice of his assistant to whistle the penalty directly.

Definitely, the recovery of the French international is excellent news for Koeman, who has only two centers in the first team, Lenglet and Araujo, to face the match against Juventus: Piqué’s disqualification and Umtiti’s injury was joined at the last minute by the muscular setback of the subsidiary’s central defender, Óscar Mingueza, the only member in Champions League.

The team will still have one last training session on match day, given that a soft activation session is scheduled for this Wednesday at 11 at Juventus Sports City.
