Two days before FC Barcelona return to Liga action, Josep Guardiola had 17 first team players at his disposition to prepare for the game at Mestalla.

Almost all the FCB squad are back in town and ready for Saturday’s game after the international break meant so many players were away.

Five more back

Messi was actually there ahead of the scheduled time of 18.00, and each of his team mates in turn congratulated him on his country’s qualification.

Henry and Ibra missing

Chygrynskiy, separate

Chygrynskiy still has ligament issues in his left leg, and therefore also worked out in isolation while his colleagues went through the usual routine.
