Final session of the week

FC Barcelona concluded their training schedule for the week on Friday morning as nine players took to the pitch at the Ciutat Esportiva. José Manuel Pinto was joined by Éric Abidal, Seydou Keita and five youth teamers.

Again the session was sparsely attended as the international absentees meant that coach Pep Guardiola had to plan with just four first team regulars and a number of B team starlets.

Five youngsters

The seniors and the youngsters kicked things off with 15 minutes of warm-up exercises and ball games.

Xavi and Pedro

Xavi Hernández and Pedro Rodríguez stayed in the gym to work on the specific recovery programmes. The playmaking midfielder missed the game against Real Mallorca and was left out of the Spain squad for the forthcoming European Championships qualifiers. Pedro, meanwhile, has a slight muscle strain that he suffered in the draw on Sunday against the Balearic Islanders.
