Sergi Roberto has a slight injury problem going into the Champions League game against Chelsea. The Catalan player did not take part in training at the Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper on Monday as a precaution after taking a knock during Saturday's win over Malaga in La Liga. 


The right-back cannot be seen in any of the videos posted of the training session, which confirmed his absence, which had been speculated before. The player fro, Reus remained inside doing specific work with the club's physiotherapist. 

Despite that, Barça are confident that Sergi Roberto will be available for Ernesto Valverde on Wednesday, although he may not be at 100 percent physically. 

Roberto took advantage of having Sunday off to go to the training ground and undergo tests with the club's medical team. The tests confirmed that there is no serious injury, just a lot of bruising. The prediction is that he will be able to train as normal on Tuesday before the Premier League side's visit. 

The two sides drew 1-1 when they met at Stamford Bridge last month, so there's everything to play for at Camp Nou this week.
