Barcelona, Sep 16 (IANS) Barcelona Argentine star Lionel Messi on Monday continued to train ahead of his team's trip to Dortmund, where the Catalan team will kick off its 2019-20 UEFA Champions League campaign against Borussia Dortmund.
This is Messi's second consecutive training session with the team, although he has yet to get the medical green light, Efe news reported.
Although the soleus injury, a muscle in the back part of the lower leg, he sustained on August 5 seems a thing of the past, it is not clear whether he will be in the squad for Tuesday's game.
Brazilian goalkeeper Neto also took part in the training session, while Ousmane Dembele trained on the sideline as he recovers from an injury he suffered a month ago.
Barcelona-B players - goalkeeper Iñaki Peña and forward Carles Perez, who became a regular starter from the beginning of the season - took part in the session, as did Ansu Fati, who started and scored in Barca's 5-2 win over Valencia.
The team will travel later to Germany and it will not train at the Signal Iduna Park stadium.
