FC Barcelona trained on Saturday morning at the Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper training facilities in preparation for Sunday evening’s Camp Nou thriller against second-placed Atletico Madrid (9 pm).  Tito Vilanova directed proceedings which, apart from the first team squad, included Tello from Barça B.  Meanwhile, Alex Song worked out in the gym and Abidal exercised away from the main group.
