The squad trained at the Ciutat Esportiva this morning in their final session before tomorrow night’s game against Atletico Madrid. Éric Abidal missed the session and will not travel to Madrid.
The French defender was given permission by the club to miss training to deal with a personal
matter and he joins the injured Jeffren as the only players to miss the trip to the Spanish capital
tomorrow as Guardiola named all 17 of his available first team squad for the game.
Final place decided this evening
The final place in the 18 man squad will be named this evening after the Barca B
game finishes - Planas, Rochina, Riverola and Armando were the four reserve team players who
trained with the first team squad this morning.
