FC Barcelona returned to training today after Saturday’s 4-0 win against Granada. The starting eleven in the game against the Andalusian side did recovery work in a training session that also included Dongou, Patric, Lucas, S. Gomez, Babunski, Bañuz, Sandro, Adama, and Calvet, from the Barcelona B Team.

The highlight of the training session was the return of Xavi Hernandez, who has overcome his hamstring discomfort, but on the downside, Adriano will miss the game against Ajax because of a ligament sprain in his left ankle.
