After a day off on Thursday, FC Barcelona’s first team returned for a training session this Friday morning. Tito Vilanova has 19 members of the first team available -everyone except for Abidal, Cuenca, Muniesa, Piqué, Thiago, and Puyol- and along with Tello and Sergi Roberto, from Barça B, the team continues to prepare for the Clàssic this Sunday at the Camp Nou (19:50).
Gerard Piqué spent today’s session doing specific work in the gym. While there was some talk that Piqué would be recovered by Sunday, his absence has already been confirmed, along with that of Abidal, Muniesa, and Puyol.
The squad will hold its next training session on Friday, at 18:00 at the Ciutat Esportiva. Afterwards, Tito Vilanova will hold a press conference.
