The Barça squad trained at the Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper on Saturday morning. Leo Messi and Sergio Busquets, who had been training at a reduced rate in recent days, took a full part in today’s session.    Meanwhile, Abidal also exercised at 100%.

However, Valdés worked away from the main group due to a niggle in his left foot while Pedro stayed away with a stomach virus.  He was seen by the doctors this morning and told to rest.  The senior players were joined by Oier and Deulofeu.

The players will have their final training session ahead of the home match against Betis at midday behind closed doors in the Camp Nou.  The match kicks off at 9 pm.
