FC Barcelona held a closed-door training session this Sunday morning at the Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper. The starters against Zaragoza did recovery work while the players that didn’t feature against the Aragón side completed a more intense work out. Four Barça B players, Tello, Montoya, Muniesa and Bartra, plus the U18 A keeper Sergi Tienda, participated in the session.

Alves, slight muscle strain

The Brazilian underwent tests to determine the extent of the injury he picked up against Zaragoza. The results indicate that the player has pulled a muscle in left thigh. His recovery will mark his availability for this Tuesday’s match against Getafe at the Camp Nou.

Piqué, recovery work

Gerard Piqué trained apart from the group. The Barça defender, who didn’t travel to Zaragoza, continued his recovery work.

Georges, Cibulkova and Cristea visit Barça

Julia Georges, Dominika Cibulkova and Sorana Cristea watched the first team train. The three tennis players will feature in the Barcelona Ladies open, which is scheduled to start this Monday.
