The Catalan giants will face Athletic Bilbao in the fnal after overcoming Real Sociedad via the penalty shoot-out on Tuesday.

The Argentine superstar was absent in the semi-final, Koeman revealed his captain did train with the side on Saturday evening.

“Leo trained individually yesterday,” Koeman said in comments carried by Diario Sport.

“He’ll train [with the team] at six today and we’ll see [how it goes]. The player always has the last word because he knows his body.

“We will wait until tomorrow morning because he knows his body and will be able to see how he’s doing after training today. We’re hopeful he can play in the game.“If Messi isn’t there, something’s missing.

"With Leo, the team is stronger. His creativity and effectiveness are missing [if he’s not there]. But we’ll try to play our game whether or not Leo is there.”
