FC Barcelona returned to training this morning after being given a day off yesterday by Quique Setien. The good news for Barça fans is seeing Lionel Messi train alongside his teammates as normal, although he was sporting a bandage on his leg.

The other piece of good news was seeing Ousmane Dembele continue his recovery from injury as he looks to prove his fitness ahead of the trip to Lisbon.

The fact Messi wore a bandage shouldn't be a cause for concern either. It was only precautionary after the heavy whack he took on it against Napoli.

The bandage covered his ankle and the lower part of his leg. Kalidou Koulibaly kicked Messi's ankle and gave away a penalty. However, Leo isn't fazed and will be ready to face Bayern on Friday.

Samuel Umtiti won't travel to Portugal after being ruled out through injury. However, Dembele's progress is pleasing after getting another week's worth of training under his belt. Ousmane will be hoping he can earn a spot in Setien's squad although he won't start.
