Recovery after getting closer to the League Title
Edgar Fornós / Jordi Clos
The players who beat Osasuna trained on Sunday morning behind closed doors at the Joan Gamper training ground.
A total of 16 first team players were on the training ground, including Carles Puyol, who continued
to do some specific recovery work. The team who played against Osasuna just did some recovery
exercises. Absentees from the session were the injured Bojan, Abidal, and Adriano, and also Milito
and Maxwell, because at the time they were undergoing medical tests.
Reserve team players Montoya and Thiago made up the group. They were both included in the
squad for the game against Osasuna, and in fact, Thiago played the whole 90 minutes.
Training started under light rain, and the players used the Champions League official ball.
It’s the type of ball that will be used on Wednesday in the first leg of the semifinals of
Europe's top competition, in Madrid. Interestingly, Barça have trained in the last week with the
official balls used in the Spanish Cup, the League, and the Champions League.
