Griezmann, Dembele train as Barcelona prepare Against Champions League

Barcelona returned to training Tuesday before the Champions League resumption, with Ousmane Dembele and Antoine Griezmann on board.

The French couple were both sidelined with injuries while they began their rehabilitation but underwent individual recovery work.

Griezmann suffered a thigh problem in the 1-0 win over Real Valladolid on July 11, forcing him to miss the final two LaLiga games as Barca were dethroned by Real Madrid during the run-in.

As for Dembele, his season was seemingly over when he underwent surgery to repair his damaged hamstring back in February.
