EL Clasico: Dembele Joins Messi, Others In Training (VIDEO)
Preparations are going well for Barcelona ahead of this weekend's El Clasico in contrast to arch-rivals Real Madrid.
The club's most expensive buy, Ousmane Dembele and a fit-again Gerard Deulofeu all joined Lionel Messi in Barcelona training on Thursday as the La Liga leaders continued preparations for El Clasico.
Ernesto Valverde has already confirmed France winger Dembele will not be risked on Saturday, but his involvement is an encouraging sign of his return from a hamstring injury.
Action footages released by Barca paints a different picture to the scenes at their bitter rivals, where Cristiano Ronaldo was unable to join his team-mates and might not be fully fit even he returns for Saturday's encounter.
