The main absence for Luis Enrique this week will be Leo Messi's. On Monday the club gave information on the various tests that will be run on the player (consequences of the kidney stones that prevented him playing the Club's World Cup) and told he would be back at training with the group on Wednesday.

Today, Leo Messi entered around 8.30 a.m. the Dexeus Clinic of Barcelona accompanied by his partner, Antonella Rocuzzo. A extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (ESWL) was to be performed on him, an non-invasive operation meant to reduce in small pieces, inside the urinary system and without operation, the stones that there may be, so that they can be ejected through the urethra. The duration of the procedure was between 45 minutes and 1 hour and Messi could go home after it.

Logically, Messi won't play the Valencia game tomorrow and will be back at training on Thursday.
