Thursday evening session
The Barça squad’s next training session will be on Thursday at 18.00, once again at the Ciutat Esportiva.
Barça have continued preparing for the Liga game with Sevilla at the Sánchez Pizjuán. But the group at the Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper this morning did not include Sergio Busquets, who stayed in the gym to do specific work to help him with back pains.
Vilanova and 21 players
Manager Tito Vilanova worked with 17 first team players plus Barça B’s Tello, Sergi Roberto, Bañuz and Masip. Meanwhile, Adriano, with muscle problems, and Puyol, recovering from pulled cruciate ligaments in his left knee, worked out in isolation from the rest of the squad.
