The players trained on Thursday morning following on from their CL victory against Spartak Moscow in the Camp Nou (3-2). As usual, the post-match session concentrated on recovering from the efforts of the night before but with an eye on Saturday’s home league game against Granada.
Jordi Alba has spent the past few days training separately from the main group as part of his recovery process from flu and missed out on the wins against Getafe and Spartak. On Thursday he was back alongside his team-mates.
Four from Barça B
Cristian Tello, Sergi Roberto, Miguel Bañuz and Carles Planas from Barça B were added to the senior players for today’s session. Meanwhile, Gerard Piqué, who twisted his foot against Spartak and will be out for the next two or three weeks, joins Puyol, Iniesta, Muniesa, Abidal and Cuenca in the treatment room.
