After more than four months of having signed for the FC Barcelona, Sergio Aguero he has finally had his first minutes as a Barça player. Although it was in a practice match against UE Cornellá, a Catalan Third Division team, the Argentine attacker has entered the game dynamics with a view to this Sunday’s match against Valencia for LaLiga. According to information from Catalan media, the former Manchester City striker has scored a goal in the half hour in which he has been on the field.
In the match, which ended 2-2, Ronald Koeman wanted to see Omen work with the ball and test the rhythm of competition before receiving the final discharge from the Barcelona medical staff. In the absence of confirmation, the ‘Kun’ has already overcome a tendon injury in the inner calf of the right leg.
Thus, Sergio Agüero would enter the list of concentrates for the league game this Sunday against Valencia at Camp Nou. If all goes well for the Argentine, he should repeat the plate for the third date of the Champions League group stage against Dinamo Kiev.
It should be remembered that the former Atlético de Madrid forward was injured a few days before the Joan Gamper Trophy against Juventus. The Argentine’s full recovery was scheduled for early November, but ‘Kun’ has achieved it much earlier.
Since his injury, Sergio Agüero has missed a total of nine official games with Barcelona: seven in La Liga (Real Sociedad, Athletic Club, Getafe, Granada, Cádiz, Levante and Atlético de Madrid) and two in the Champions League (Bayern Munich and Benfica).
Another Barcelona player who aims to reappear this Sunday after several months injured is Ousmane Dembélé. Last Monday, the French striker trained normally and would soon receive a medical discharge. In this way, the ‘Mosquito’ would add their first minutes of the season against Valencia.
The return of these two players is good news for Ronald Koeman, who is gradually recovering injured after a start to the season weighed down by these absences. The Dutchman had already recovered Jordi Alba and Ansu Fati before the current international break.
