Barça arrange Cornella friendly to give minutes to Aguero & Dembele


The two forwards are in the final straight of their returns from injuries

Barcelona are playing a friendly at the training ground on Wednesday against UE Cornella with the aim of giving minutes to Sergio Aguero and Ousmane Dembele.

Aguero and Dembele both returned to training earlier this week, although the Argentina forward is much closer to a comeback than the Frenchman.

Ronald Koeman, who has a large number of his international players already back in training, arranged the game to hand minutes to other players, too, such as Jordi Alba and Alex Balde, who were both injured before the break.

The game against Cornella, therefore, will help several players gain valuable minutes before Sunday's game against Valencia at Camp Nou, while it will also be a chance for some of the young players to impress.

Ronald Araujo, Pedri and Martin Braithwaite are still injured, though.
