The squad trained this Monday lunchtime after their big win against Rayo, but two big names were missing: Alexis, who picked up a knock on his left leg, and Valdes, who is ill. The Chilean hit man is doubtful for Wednesday’s game, though the Club doctors are keeping him under observation before making a final decision.

Gentle session for Sunday’s heroes

The players who figured on Sunday were given a gentle session, whilst the rest of the squad began preparations for Wednesday night’s game, along with 10 B team players - Bartra, Tello and Montoya –who were included in the squad for the Rayo game- and Rodri, Carmona, Oriol Rosell, Espinosa, Lobato, Sergi Gómez, and Masip.
