FC Barcelona continues to prepare for the first leg of the semi-finals of the Copa del Rey against Valencia (Wednesday at 21:00) with two training sessions this Tuesday. The first session was held on Tuesday morning with 22 players working under Guardiola, namely the 14 available players from the first team and 8 players from Barça B: Isaac Cuenca, Jonathan dos Santos, Tello, Sergi Roberto, Marc Bartra, Marc Muniesa, Montoya, and Rodri. Injured players Pedro, Iniesta, Afellay, Villa worked in the gym as they continue working on their respective recoveries.
