Barcelona welcomed their formidable forward trio of Lionel Messi, Neymar, Luis Suarez back to training on Monday ahead of their Copa del Rey clash with Athletic Bilbao at San Mames.
The attacking trio as well as Javier Mascherano are all back from extended breaks and took part in Barcelona training on Monday.
Lionel Messi, Neymar and Luis Suarez all returned from extended breaks to complete a full session as the holders prepare for the last-16 first leg against Ernesto Valverde’s side on Thursday.
Defender Javier Mascherano was also back on the Tito Vilanova training pitch as Luis Enrique’s squad practised in full for the first time in 2017.
Goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen was the only player to sit out the session, with the Netherlands international having been ruled out for two weeks with a calf injury.
Barca take on Athletic before they resume their LaLiga title defence against Villarreal on January 8.
