Pep Guardiola again had only a handful of players for training on Friday with seven first-team stars and two youngsters from the Juvenil A being promoted to join them.

Those absentees have left just Víctor Valdés, José Manuel Pinto, Gaby Milito, Rafael Márquez, Pedro, Bojan Krkic and Maxwell to train.
