Training session: Final sprint

The team trained on Tuesday morning with all thoughts on the Cup Final against Athletic Bilbao. Thiago, Alexis and Pinto were all able to work out normally.

On Tuesday morning, Barça trained for the second to last time before Friday’s Copa del Rey Final. The venue was Sant Joan Despí. Thiago, now recovered from his stomach bug, and Alexis and Pinto, though not yet declared fully fit, were able to train at the same pace as their team-mates. Like on Monday, they were joined by four members of the B team: Montoya, Bartra, Dos Santos and Tello.

In cold, windy weather, the only players missing were, as expected, Alves, Puyol, Villa, Abidal and Fontàs. The team will continue its preparations for the duel with Athletic Bilbao on Wednesday morning, behind closed doors at the Ciutat Esportiva. (via FCBarcelona.com)
