Barcelona have been handed a triple personnel boost ahead of their meeting with Linares Deportivo.
Linares Deportivo vs Barcelona
Linares Deportivo and Barcelona are set to face off in the Copa del Rey this coming Wednesday.
Barcelona head into the game having not lost in their last three competitive outings, with their last tie seeing them beat Mallorca 1-0 in La Liga.
Despite that victory, Barcelona are still 5th in the league and a full 15 points behind Real Madrid, who Barca do have a game in hand on.
Even without that game in hand, though, it seems unlikely that La Blaugrana will be able to truly compete for the La Liga crown this year.
So, winning something like the Copa del Rey is probably one of the best things Xavi can hope for in his first season at the club.
Barcelona’s triple boost
And now, ahead of the clash with Linares, as mentioned above, Barca have been handed some superb news on the personnel front.
All of Memphis Depay, Ansu Fati and Pedri are training with the group. It is added that the trio are likely to return for the clash with Linares or, at the very latest vs Granada:
Memphis, Ansu and Pedri train with the group. They still do not have a medical discharge but the three will return to the call against Linares or Granada to very stretch
Memphis, Ansu y Pedri se entrenan con el grupo. Aún no tienen el alta médica pero los tres regresarán a la convocatoria ante Linares o Granada a muy estirar #fcblive
