Striker Pedro Rodríguez has been suffering from gastroenteritis this week and is now on antibiotics, with his presence in the 2014/15 league season on Sunday evening in doubt. Barça start their campaign against Elche at the Camp Nou (9.00 PM CET). The rest of the first team continued getting ready for the big day with a training session this morning at the Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper. There were 20 first team players involved plus four from the reserves, Munir, Samper, Sandro and Grimaldo. Adriano joined in with part of the session.
Meanwhile, Pedro is still off sick with gastroenteritis, and Vermaelen and Ter Stegen have continued with their specific recovery schedules.
