Barcelona final training session ahead of Napoli clash: Ferran Torres out, Raphinha available

Barcelona held their final training session at the Ciudad Deportiva on Monday ahead of their Champions League clash against Napoli on Tuesday.

Ferran Torres was absent from the session as he is not yet fully recovered from a hamstring injury he suffered in the match against Osasuna on January 31.

Raphinha, who was substituted after 37 minutes in the match against Mallorca after a hard knock from Copete, was present. Barcelona coach Xavi had already given reassurances about the player: “It is not an injury or a lesion, but only a knock. Raphinha told me that he only received a knock, so everyone should be available for the match against Napoli on Tuesday in Europe.”

The first leg ended in a 1-1 draw, with Osimhen responding to Lewandowski’s goal. The Blaugrana had at least three other clear chances to score. “We left them alive in the first leg, we played a great first half and we should have scored more. We were superior, they didn’t do much, but now we start on an equal footing,” said Blaugrana defender Joao Cancelo in an interview with La Gazzetta dello Sport.
