Andrés Iniesta trained with the FC Barcelona first-team on Friday as the players continued their preparations for the trip to face Atlético de Madrid at the weekend and the world’s media watched on from the sidelines.

The Blaugrana were focussed on the game in the Vicente Calderón on Sunday and on Friday coach Pep Guardiola took his players out to Pitch Number One at the Ciudad Deportiva Joan Gamper. The opening few minutes of the session were open to the media and the main novelty was Iniesta as he trained with the players as they went through their warm-up exercises and ball games.

Milito back in training

Gaby Milito returned to training with the squad on Thursday, after nine months on the sidelines recovering from a knee injury, and he too was present again after having a check-up before the session began. Carles Puyol was able to train again after missing out the day before.

Abidal the only absentee
