Recovery work without Alves

After the victory at La Romareda, Barça trained this morning at the Ciutat Esportiva. Alves, with a stained muscle in his left thigh, is doubtful for the match against Getafe.

Guardiola worked will all available first-team footballers and Barça B’s Tello, Montoya, Muniesa and Bartra. Barça’s U18 A keeper, Sergi Tienda, also participated in the session.

FC Barcelona held a closed-door training session this Sunday morning at the Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper. The starters against Zaragoza did recovery work while the players that didn’t feature against the Aragón side completed a more intense work out. Four Barça B players, Tello, Montoya, Muniesa and Bartra, plus the U18 A keeper Sergi Tienda, participated in the session.

The Brazilian underwent tests to determine the extent of the injury he picked up against Zaragoza. The results indicate that the player has pulled a muscle in left thigh. His recovery will mark his availability for this Tuesday’s match against Getafe at the Camp Nou.

Gerard Piqué trained apart from the group. The Barça defender, who didn’t travel to Zaragoza, continued his recovery work. (via FCBarcelona.com)
