Tito Vilanova was able to call on all his international players this evening at the Ciutat Esportiva. Messi and Villa stayed in the gym, whilst the rest worked out on the training pitch and the injured Thiago and Adriano worked apart.

B team players Tello, Rafinha, Sergi Gómez and Bañuz also took part in the session, which began with the players warming up with a basketball.

The squad will be back in for training on Friday ahead of Saturday’s visit of Zaragoza.
