Small number for training


After the draw at San Mamés, Barça trained on Sunday morning in order to regain strength ahead of the game with Inter. Six important players were missing.

The plane from Bilbao landed in Barcelona at 1.30 last night, but by noon the players were together again at the Ciudad Deportiva Joan Gamper for training as Guardiola turns his mind to the crunch game on Tuesday against Inter.

Ibrahimovic, who is still sidelined with a muscle injury, was also absent, as was Piqué, who worked out the gym.

But Leo Messi was also missing, having spent Sunday morning undergoing tests to find out how serious the injury he sustained last night at San Mamés actually is.

Gentle session for starters

The reserve team players that also joined the squad in Bilbao, Fontàs and Jonathan dos Santos, also joined in. Oier Olazábal, one of the Barça Atlètic goalkeepers, also participated.
