10 first-team players did a drug test again
Andres Iniesta is still the main question for Barcelona in the UCL final next Saturday. Although the midfielder said in press conference that he would play, this Wednesday couldn't train with his teammates and made specific work to recover from fatigue on his right calf muscle.
Iniesta will push his body to be in Berlin, as he did in 2009 Rome final
In a normal case, Iniesta would rest and not play. But being a Champions League final, Iniesta will push his body to be in the XI of the final. Don't forget that in the 2009 Rome final, Iniesta played despite a muscle injury. Doctors probably recommended him not to kick the ball with a lot of power. Despite the limitation, Barcelona's '8' did a great game and assisted Eto'o's first goal.
This Wednesday the rest of the team trained normally. Munir and Sandro —Barça B strikers— completed the group. The team is absolutely focused on the final and this Thursday they will do the last training before travelling to Berlin this Friday.
This morning, UEFA did another drug test to 10 players, the second test in 7 days. This time the chosen were Ter Stegen, Piqué, Rakitic, Xavi, Messi, Neymar Jr, Rafinha, Alba, Sergi Roberto and Adriano.
