The day after their 0-0 draw away to Huesca on Saturday, Barcelona now turn their attentions towards Tuesday's return leg in the Champions League quarter-final against Manchester United

Rakitic and Sergi Roberto

Rakitic and Sergi Roberto were the story of Sunday's training session, with both missing the trip to bottom-placed Huesca due to fever and muscle problems, respectively. Both rejoined their team-mates in training and are set to be named among the Champions League squad tomorrow.

Camp Nou

In Saturday's post-match interview, Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde Valverde admitted that Sergi Roberto was struggling to shake off the injury, which was why he wanted to take precautions with Semedo and Jordi Alba, who both only played a few minutes on Saturday. Sergi Roberto, however, is likely to start on the bench at the Camp Nou, as he did at Old Trafford.
