Last session Saturday in the Camp Nou
Barça will be back at work on Saturday morning at 11.30, behind closed doors in the Camp Nou, the
same place where, later that day at 20.00, they will be playing Zaragoza.
After receiving treatment for almost two weeks on a knee injury, Víctor Valdés has been given the
medical all-clear and was back with the squad on pitch number one at the Ciutat Esportiva Joan
Gamper. The main focus of the session was Saturday’s league fixture with Real Zaragoza, the
17th of the campaign, and which kicks off at 20.00 in the Camp Nou.
Puyol back with squad
The 21 players in the session included the whole first team plus reserve
keeper Rubén Miño and also Carles Puyol, who has yet to receive medical clearance. On Thursday, he
had worked in isolation from the main group, and only joined in with a few exercises towards the
end, but today he was able to join his colleagues from start to finish.
Vilanova in charge
For the second day running, it was Tito Vilanova who took the session, as Josep
after being taken to hospital for treatment on a slipped disc.
