Keita Balde is inching closer to his highly anticipated return. The Senegalese trained with the team yesterday until the practice match and then he continued with personalized program.
According to the Corriere dello Sport, Keita wanted to participate in that practice match but he was told to wait a bit longer. In any case, the upcoming sessions are fundamental for his availability against Eintracht Frankfurt on Thursday.
The former Lazio striker has been out since mid-January and so it is difficult to see him playing in such a tense match. But flying to Germany with the team should give a much needed boost in moral. The goal is to be back fully against SPAL when he could either start together with Lautaro Martinez or give the Argentinian a breather in the second half.
