The first team continued today with preparations for Sunday’s trip to Villarreal in a session held on pitch number 1 at the Ciutat Esportiva. Javier Mascherano joined the rest of the squad for some of the exercises after training alone on Tuesday. The Argentinian international hurt his calf against Athletic Bilbao on Sunday. As planned, Sergio Busquets worked out in isolation and should be re-joining the rest of his colleagues on Thursday.

The session was completed by Barça B’s Grimaldo, Samper, Sergi Gómez and Jordi Masip.

Puyol, Piqué, Neymar, Jonathan dos Santos and Jordi Alba all did recovery work on their respective injuries.
