The Portuguese João Cancelo did not train this Tuesday with FC Barcelona due to a fever, while the Dutchman Frenkie de Jong did not exercise with the club's permission either.
In the training session led by Xavi Hernández, the first to prepare for the match against Rayo next Saturday, Spanish internationals Íñigo Martínez, Ferran Torres, João Félix and Lamine Yamal have joined.
Added to Cancelo's loss is that of Frenkie de Jong, who is fully recovered and is expected to be discharged this week after almost two months out.
The Dutchman has permission from the club because the imminent birth of his first child is expected, the result of his relationship with Mikky Kiemeney.
In the casualty chapter, the last, and long-term one, is that of Gavi, who will be inactive for a minimum of eight months due to a rupture of the cruciate ligament in his right knee, in addition to other associated injuries.
Also still out is Sergi Roberto, who suffered a muscle injury to his right soleus in training a month ago (October 18). Furthermore, the Barça club's medical services are awaiting the progress of German goalkeeper Marc André ter Stegen, with a strong blow to the lower back.
