A new look for Messi and Alena trains with Barcelona's first team

Barcelona returned to training on Friday morning after being granted a break by Ernesto Valverde following their Champions League victory over PSV Eindhoven.

The biggest surprise of the day was that Lionel Messi appeared clean shaven, saying goodbye to the beard he had sported for two years.

Carles Alena, as he often does, trained with the first team again but what is interesting is that he has not been called up to play for the B team on Saturday against Conquense.

Valverde may look to call upon the youngster to join his match day squad against Girona.

Having been injured in the last game of last season for Barcelona B, he has played twice in this campaign and now could make the step into the first team.
