Messi joins in training

Sandra Sarmiento/Anna Segura

The Barca squad were back in training this morning following the draw in Pamplona. It was a gentle session, with the players happy to welcome Messi back after the Argentinean missed the Osasuna game.

With Wednesday’s tie against Lyon on the immediate horizon, the players decided to put the disappointment of last night’s draw behind them and prepare for the opening of their Champions League campaign.

Third choice keeper Oier Olazábal was the other new face in the session, whilst club captain Carles Puyol worked out on his own, as did Lilian Thuram, who did some stretching exercises with one of the club trainers.
