Sunday training at the Nou Camp
The players will have a final session before the Bilbao game on Sunday at noon on the Nou Camp
pitch, will be held behind closed doors.
Pep Guardiola was able to call on 18 of his first team squad for training on Saturday morning,
including striker Villa who seemed to have fully recovered from the knock on his left ankle he was
receiving treatment for on Friday.
Sergi Roberto trains with the squad
Two B team players, keeper Oier and midfielder Sergi Roberto, both
joined up with the first team players on Pitch Number One at the Ciutat Esportiva. Sergi was given
the medical okay on Tuesday after a muscle injury and after training with the first team on Friday,
looks like he might make the final 19 for the Bilbao game.
Puyol and Jeffren
Puyol and Jeffren continued with their recovery work and they both took part in running and
jogging exercises with a trainer alongside the pitch this morning.
