Barcelona looked very relaxed as they trained ahead of their Champions League clash with PSV.

The Catalan side have already qualified for the last 16 but are hoping to top the group with a win over the Dutch side.

Lionel Messi and Arturo Vidal looked as though they were sharing a joke during their training in Eindhoven.  

Vidal does believes his Barcelona team-mate Ousmane Dembele ‘needs love’, however.

The 21-year-old France forward is reportedly unhappy at the Nou Camp, but scored a late equaliser to earn Barca a 1-1 draw at Atletico Madrid on Saturday.

‘Ousmane needs love,’ said Vidal, speaking ahead of Wednesday’s Champions League clash at PSV Eindhoven.

He’s a very important player for us, he’s scored some big goals and he’s going to be important for some time to come.’

Barca boss Ernesto Valverde could turn to Dembele, who joined from Borussia Dortmund in August 2017 for a fee which could reach a potential £135million, as his side seek to confirm their place as Group B winners in Holland.

Valverde has Philippe Coutinho available and Ivan Rakitic has travelled to Eindhoven following a hamstring injury. Both could feature for a Barca side depleted by injuries.
