Villa likely to miss Real Sociedad clash

The Asturian striker trained alone inside the gym as Barcelona began preparations for Saturday's trip to Anoeta with a light recovery workout at the Joan Gamper complex.


Villa likely to miss Real Sociedad clash

FC Barcelona's thoughts have turned to Saturday's trip to San Sebastián and the first team squad were back on the training pitch on Thursday morning - just hours after the team were held to a 2-2 draw by Málaga in the first leg of the Copa del Rey quarter-final.

David Villa is almost certain to miss the weekend meeting with Real Sociedad - he is struggling to overcome a thigh injury and failed to appear on the practice pitches for Thursday's session.

Tito Vilanova will be encouraged that both Marc Muniesa and Isaac Cuenca appear to be nearing the end of their respective rehabilitation programmes and both players exercised with the main group at the Joan Gamper complex. Those who took part in the Málaga game trained at a more leisurely pace in a session with no other incidents of note.
