Barcelona Shield / Flag

Ronald Koeman recovered two important pieces at the last minute for your plans for the next matches: Francisco Trincao and Miralem Pjanic. The Portuguese did not train on Thursday to be aware of the PCR tests, while the Bosnian stayed in the gym after returning to Barcelona with a severe contusion on his back that forced him to be substituted in the first half in the match of Bosnia in Poland. Both exercised without further delay in the afternoon session this Friday, so they will be in the call for the game this Saturday against Getafe at the Alfonso Pérez stadium (9 pm).

In case of Trincao is the one who had raised the most expectations: the positive of Cristiano Ronaldo during the concentration with Portugal had turned the blaugrana into a risk person as he had been in direct contact with an infected person. Hence, the club activated the security protocol that LaLiga marks. The player did not go to the Ciutat Esportiva on Thursday but they went to his house to perform a test of PCR. During the 24 hours it took to know the results, the Portuguese he has been totally confined to his home. Once it became known that the result was negative, He was able to go to the Ciutat Esportiva and train with his teammates.

Who Junior Firpo has also participated in the session, although he has not completed it. It should be remembered that the left-back was out against Celta due to discomfort in the hamstrings and has not yet been discharged. Given the lack of wingers -Jordi Alba is injured-, it cannot be ruled out that he enters the list for Getafe, although in no case to play as a starter, because that position is assigned for the brand new signing of Koeman, Sergiño Dest, although its natural position is on the right wing.

This Friday's session was the first of the week in which Koeman could count on all his troops, with the already known casualties of Ter Stegen, Alba and Umtiti.
