Leo Messi has rejoined normal squad training, after he have done individual fitness exercises the day before at the Ciutat Esportiva. Today he participated in some of the normal routine along with his team-mates. Sergio Busquets, who is recovering from groin trouble, was also able to train with the group.

Meanwhile, José Manuel Pinto continued working on a separate part of the field as he recovers from the lumbago that kept in out of the last squad for the Zaragoza match. As cover for him, Barça B’s Oier Olazábal was called upon to train with the first team.

This was the second to last training session before Saturday’s home fixture against Levante (20.00). Tito Vilanova will be conducting one further session on the morning of then match, behind closed doors at the Camp Nou at 11.30.
