Pep Guardiola put the players through their paces in the first session of preparation for Wednesday night's game and without the injured Afellay, Villa and Pedro, who were busy on recovery work at the Ciutat Esportiva, as well as Keita who is away on international duty, he brought in 10 players from the Barça B squad - Cuenca, Montoya, Sergi Roberto, Jonathan dos Santos, Oier, Armando, Sergi Gómez, Oriol Rosell, Gustavo and Kiko Femenía.

Whilst those players who figured against Betis did recovery work, the rest had a more intense workout as attention turned to the Cup and the first of the Clasicos against Real Madrid.

The squad return to the Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper for training on Tuesday afternoon at 18.00, again behind closed doors, after which Pep Guardiola will hold a press conference ahead of Wednesday's match.
