The next first team training session will be on Thursday at 10.00 at the training ground. The session will be closed to the media. Later, Eric Abidal will appear at a press conference.
After a week without a large part of the squad, finally, on Wednesday afternoon, Pep Guardiola had them all back. After their commitments with their national teams, the 13 Barça Internationals returned to training: Messi, Mascherano, Alves, Alexis, Abidal, Thiago, Valdes, Iniesta, Xavi, Cesc, Pedro, Sergio Busquets and Villa.

Light session for the Internationals

Players who played for their national sides on Tuesday had a light session, focused on recovery work, while the rest, including the injured players Afellay, Adriano, Puyol, and Maxwell, all worked at one hundred percent to prepare for the game on Saturday against Real Sociedad.

The only player absent on pitch number 2 of the training ground was Gerard Pique, who did some work in the gym to help him recover from his injury.

Six reserve players

The six B Team players who trained with the first team on Tuesday, did the same again this afternoon. They were Oriol Rosell, Gustavo, Gerard Deulofeu, Cuenca, Lobato, and Carmona.
