Just a few hours after their 0-2 Cup win away to Cordoba, the players were back at the Club’s Sant Joan Despí training grounds to begin preparations for Sunday’s key clash with Atletico Madrid. The emphasis was on recovering from last night’s match and Dani Alves and Leo Messi worked out in the gym separately from the main group. Meanwhile, Adriano received the green light from Club doctors to resume training and was joined by Tello and Dongou from Barça B.

Keita back on familiar ground

The main talking point was the re-appearance of former Barça favourite Seydou Keita. The Mali international has finished the season with Chinese club Dalian Aerbin FC and will train alongside the senior squad to get himself in shape for the Africa Cup of Nations. He was given a warm reception by his ex-teammates.
