Gerard Piqué has some discomfort in his left thigh and won't play in Saturday's game against Vissel Kobe. The evolution of the injury will condition the players' availability. Coach, Ernesto Valverde explained in his press conference prior to the game: "Piqué won't play, as a precaution above all."
This will be the second friendly that FC Barcelona will play this pre-season and will serve to end the tour of Japan. The first game against Chelsea ended in a 1-2 defeat but also saw the debuts of Griezmann, De Jong and Neto.
