Preparations for Atlético Madrid continue

FC Barcelona continues to prepare for Sunday’s league match against Atlético Madrid (19:00). Tito Vilanova led the training session this Friday with all the available members of the first team squad, plus Juvenil A’s Sergi Samper.

Éric Abidal was able to spend part of the session working with the group, after doing specific work on his own the last few days. Javier Mascherano was also able to work with his teammates for part of the session for the third time this week.

Pedro, who received his medical clearance on Thursday, and Víctor Valdés, who missed the match against Real Betis owing to plantar fasciitis in his left foot, both trained normally.
