Gerard Piqué trains for Barcelona ahead of El Clásico

Gerard Piqué took part in Barcelona’s training session on Thursday morning with one eye on Saturday’s El Clásico away to Real Madrid.

Piqué suffered a lateral ligament sprain in his right knee in the 3-0 Copa del Rey win over Sevilla which helped Barça come from behind to reach the final.

Antoine Griezmann, however, didn’t take part in the session as his wife gave birth to their third child, according to Cadena Cope.

Barcelona travel to Madrid for the much anticipated Clásico, with the Catalan side currently sitting in second place, just two points ahead of Madrid in third and one point off leaders Atlético Madrid.
