Messi's participation against Alavaes next Saturday in the third round of La Liga is still in question, the same as his Portuguese teammate Andre Gomes, who has a right leg injury, as well as Andres Iniesta, who took a blow to the right knee.

Wednesday's training session saw the return of other international players, such as the Croatian Ivan Rakitic, while players from Barcelona B took part in the training as well, including Marlon, Carbonell, Sarsanedas and Moises.
