Leo Messi has been the big absence in this morning's training session on Thursday at the Sports City. The club has not reported his absence, but in the images shared by Barça you can see that Messi didn't train with his mates.

Recall that in the match against Deportivo, Messi received two blows to the ankle. However, Messi played 90 minutes without problems. Gerard Piqué, who couldn't participate in Tuesday's session, returned to training routine.

The rest of the first-team players have done a smooth recovery session under the rain. Luis Enrique also included Borja López and Juan Cámara of Barça B. The next training session will be on Friday morning and then Barça's coach will give a press conference before the match against Sporting Gijon on Saturday (8.30 pm CEST.)
