Barça trained at La Masia this morning with the aim of putting Sunday’s defeat behind them as soon as possible. Oleguer was back and completed the whole session, while Henry and Deco didn’t appear.

Training this Monday morning saw the return of Oleguer Presas who completed the entire session with his team mates. The Barça defender has been sidelined with a bone fracture in his left hand since the League encounter with Seville and today he wore hand protection.

Deco and Henry missing

Also absent were the injured Ezquerro, Jorquera, Márquez and Messi

Seven reserve players (Oier, Fali, Urbano, Sergio Busquets, Guerra, Rueda and Eneko) trained with the first team.

Ronaldinho, Xavi and Iniesta took part in the close passing exercises before heading back to the dressing room.

Circuits and game

The remaining players did a number of different circuits with the ball and afterwards practiced long passes. They were then divided into two teams for a practice match.
