As reported by FC Barcelona, Messi will return to Barça discipline after the match against Eibar, which will be played on Tuesday at 7.15pm at the Camp Nou.
So, The Argentine will extend his vacation in Rosario and will not play again until January 3 against Huesca.
The other members of the squad returned to work at the Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper with the exception of the long-term injured Ansu Fati, Gerard Piqué and Sergi Roberto.
The great novelty of the call against Eibar has many probabilities to be that of Ousmane Dembélé, who trained with the group normally.
Before training, all the Barcelona players passed a PCR test as established in the LaLiga protocol.
