Carles Puyol is the main highlight of the 19-man squad that goes to Santander this afternoon despite not yet being officially taken off the injury list. The following players will take on Racing on Sunday (6 pm, GolT and Canal+ Liga): Valdés, Pinto, Dani Alves, Cesc, Puyol, Xavi, Iniesta, Messi, Mascherano, Keita, Sergio Busquets, Pedro, Adriano, Cuenca, Tello, Montoya, Bartra, Sergi Roberto and Muniesa.

Morning training session

The players were back in training on Saturday morning after a day off on Friday.  Puyol was able to train as normal with the rest of the squad but Alexis and Abidal worked out separately from the main group.  Thiago followed a personalised programme and is expected to return to full training next week but will miss tomorrow's match.
