The squad trained on Tuesday morning at La Masia after a day off on Monday. Rijkaard is missing the ten players that are away on international duty.

It was a small training session with many absentees, for not only were several players away with their national sides, but Edmílson worked out on his own, as did Ronaldinho. The Brazilian took a knock in the eye against Osasuna and the doctors decided it would be a better idea if he was to miss the session.

And of course, Ezquerro, Jorquera and Puyol are still recovering from their respective injuries.

Circuit training

The ball was added to the session later on, and Oleguer and Sylvinho supplied crosses for Messi and Milito. The two goalkeepers joined in with this part of the session, having been taken aside until then to work in the company of goalkeepers coach Juan Carlos Unzué.

Gudjohnsen left the session early after suffering a minor injury to his right calf.
