Wonderful news for Quique Setién, who hopes to be able to have at least the French striker available against Napoli in the last 16, after the 1-1 draw in the first leg.
Griezmann is recovering from an injury in the quadriceps of his right leg, so could be back in time for the important clash.
Dembélé will have it much more complicated, with whom Barcelona are being very careful since every precaution is insufficient. In fact, there’s not much hope that he can make it to the Champions League match in top form.
Barcelona also informed on their social media that the reserve team players Iñaki Peña, Mingueza, Reis, Jandro, Monchu, Konrad, Riqui Puig and Ansu Fati particpated in the session.
