Bojan Krkic and Touré Yaya both returned to first team duty at Frank Rijkaard’s training session on Tuesday.

Both players will be available for selection for Saturday’s away trip to Zaragoza. The squad was also joined by Barça B’s second choice goalkeeper Pau Torres.

As on Sunday, a number of players were also absent as they worked in the treatment room on different minor niggles picked up in Saturday’s game in Seville.

Specific cases

Giovani has hurt his right thigh, Abidal has isquiotibial bother, Messi has problems with his left ankle, and Thuram has injured both thighs. Henry, meanwhile, is still dealing with the injury to his left leg that caused him to be substituted in the game at the Sánchez Pizjuán.

Physical workout

Then all but Touré, who left early, tackled a circuit course that involved several changes of direction and ended with a shot on goal. The session ended with shooting practice for everybody.
