20 players travelling to Italy

Sandra Sarmiento / Vanessa Forns

Josep Guardiola has called up all his available players for the trip to Milan, with Barca Atlètic defender Andreu Fontàs also making the trip and Andres Iniesta and Chygrynskiy the only absentees.

The 20 players making the arduous coach trip to Milan, include Éric Abidal, who has still not been given the medical thumbs up to play.

Last session in Barcelona

After the goalless draw against Espanyol, the players trained under Guardiola’s orders today with their focus fixed on the European challenge in Milan. The whole squad, with the exception of the injured Andrés Iniesta and Lionel Messi, who worked out in the gym, took part in the session.

Miño and Fontàs with the first team squad

As has become normal on such occasions, Guardiola called in two Barca Atletic players – keeper Rubén Miño and defender Andreu Fontàs –for the session, which was held behind closed doors at the Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper.

Recovery work

Most of the session was dedicated to warming down from last night’s game, whilst those players who didn’t feature did some ball work, using the kind of ball that is used in the Champions League. The aim of the session was clearly trying to get the players back and ready for Tuesday’s game.
