Éric Abidal and Sergio Busquets were both given the medical OK to play after this morning’s training session ahead of the game against Betis at the Camp Nou this evening. Both layers – as well as Messi – trained normally, whilst Pedro worked apart from the rest of the squad.

Pedro, who is still not feeling 100% after his midweek stomach bug, joins Puyol, Mascherano and Valdés on the injury list for tonight’s game, despite joining in at this morning’s session.

Barça B players Oier and Deulofeu, both trained with the full squad.

Madrid’s 4-3 win over Valladolid on Saturday night Cal means the title celebrations have been put on hold, but a win against Betis would lead Tito’s side needing just two more points to win the league.
