Nine reserves in last session of the week

The Copa del Rey Final preparations have continued with the presence of several Barça B players.

Thiago, suffering from a stomach virus, stayed in the gym.

The next session is on Monday evening.

Barça trained for last time this week at the Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper. Nine players were brought in from the B team, namely Bartra, Tello, Montoya, Planas, Sergi Roberto, Sergi Gómez, Riverola, Dos Santos and Muniesa. Thiago Alcántara, who still hasn’t recovered from a stomach virus, worked out alone in the gym.

The other players, including Alexis and Pinto despite neither of them having been declared fully fit, trained in all normality. The players have now been given two days to rest and refocus in preparation for Friday’s cup final. They will meet again for training on Monday evening. (via FCBarcelona.cat)
