After a well-deserved day’s rest, the senior squad trained on Thursday evening at the Masia training grounds. The entire squad, with the exceptions of the injured trio of Eto'o, Deco and Edmílson, was present at the session.

The training session started at 6 pm accompanied by rain. Only Eto'o, Deco and Edmílson were missing due to injury.

Individual training plan for Messi

Henry and Thuram also trained apart from the group under the supervision of one of the fitness coaches. Henry then continued in the gym.

Back from injury

Meanwhile, Touré and Zambrotta, who had already trained with the squad on Sunday, also trained as normal. All three players are now nearing the end of their recovery programmes.

Lighter session

The Barça players who started the match against Rangers were treated to a lighter session lasting 45 minutes. The substitutes, together with goalkeepers Valdés and Jorquera, plus Márquez, Zambrotta and Touré, stayed longer to practice positional play.
