The Barcelona players have re-represented themselves at the club after a brief vacation between the end of LaLiga and the resumption of the Champions League. However, apart from Arthur, who no longer wants to play for the team, Quique Setién has a big problem to solve: only 11 line players are available for training.
The players who returned to train are Jordi Alba, Junior Firpo, Clement Lenglet, Gerard Piqué, Nélson Semedo, Frenkie de Jong, Sergi Roberto, Ivan Rakitic, Leo Messi, Luis Suárez and Martin Braithwaite. That can be quite a problem for Barcelona, who face Napoli in less than two weeks. The Catalans welcome the Neapolitans on August 8, in the duel back from the round of 16 of the Champions League. The Setién team needs the victory to qualify.
It is worth remembering that Sergio Busquets and Arturo Vidal are out of the duel back against the Neapolitans by the suspension. In addition to Arthur, several other players are not available in Barcelona. Antoine Griezmann is one of the main absences. The player suffered a muscle injury and is still in the process of recovery, but his presence in the duel against Napoli is still expected.
