The FC Barcelona players trained at the Ciutat Esportiva ahead of tomorrow’s Champions League clash with Paris Saint-Germain. One of the players that trained under Tito Vilanova’s orders was Leo Messi. Previously, during the pre-match press conference, Jordi Roura announced that Messi’s recovery “was positive.”

In addition to the Argentine, Adriano and Pedro, both of whom have yet to receive the medical all-clear to play, trained with the team. Barça B’s Deulofeu and Oier also trained with the group; they were not named to the team for tomorrow’s match, however.

After the session, the 20 players named to the team left for the team hotel. Leo Messi, Pedro and Adriano all made the cut while Dos Santos was dropped from the team. Barça will complete one final training session - Wednesday at noon at the Camp Nou - before the match against PSG.

The team

Valdés, Pinto, Alves, Piqué, Fàbregas, Xavi, Villa, Iniesta, Alexis, Messi, Thiago, Bartra, Sergio, Pedro, Jordi Alba, Montoya, Adriano, Abidal, Song and Tello.
