Surprise in Barcelona training: Pedri's back early! But no Araujo...

Pedri could be fit for Wednesday's Copa semi despite being ruled out initially

FC Barcelona trained on Tuesday in preparation for the Copa del Rey semifinal second leg against Sevilla at Camp Nou, in which they will have to overturn a 2-0 deficit.

The big surprise was that Pedri joined in the session just days after being ruled out with a calf injury. Remember he had to be taken off in the La Liga win at Sevilla on Saturday and left the stadium on crutches. In theory, he'd been ruled out of the Copa re-match.

The negative, though, was that Ronald Araujo was not able to train with his teammates. The defender instead did individual work in the gym.

Araujo was taken off with an ankle problem on Saturday just minutes after making his return following a three-week layoff with an ankle injury.

Meanwhile, Ronald Koeman also called up B teamers Ilaix Moriba and Konrad de la Fuente for the session ahead of the semifinal.
