BARCELONA – Sergio Agüero ‘debuted’ this Wednesday with Barcelona on the occasion of a training match that pitted the Barça team against UD Cornellá (from the third category of Spanish football), in which the Argentine participated 30 minutes showing a recovery total rupture of the tendon of the internal calf that he suffered in August and that could cause his presence in the call-up of Ronald Koeman for Sunday’s game against Valencia.
Kun could not have a more positive debut, scoring the first goal of a match that ended in a draw (2-2), with Coutinho being the author of the second Barça goal already in the second half. The one who did not participate in the friendly was Ousmane Dembélé, confirming in this way that the Frenchman will still remain outside the coach’s plans and it is very doubtful that he could be ready to reappear in the Clásico on October 24.
FACE AND CROSS
The Barça club remained cautious, warning ESPN Digital that the Argentine forward is “lacking rhythm” and waiting for the next training sessions for the squad before making a final decision, although without ruling out that on Saturday he could receive medical discharge.

The Canarian midfielder suffered a relapse of his muscular discomfort and continues to exercise outside the squad, his presence being even doubtful the following Wednesday in the Champions League match against Dynamo Kiev and waiting for an improvement in his evolution in the face of the duel against the real Madrid.
Ronald Araújo, for his part, suffered a hamstring injury during the game between Argentina and Uruguay that already separated him from the duel that his team must face with Brazil and that will keep him out for no less than two weeks, with which he will not he is expected in the next three games for the Barça team.
