No injury woes for Roura while Abidal gets the all-clear

Jordi Roura will have the luxury of a full of squad for Wednesday's Copa del Rey semi-final first leg against Real Madrid. The only exception is Éric Abidal who has received the all-clear by doctors after undergoing tests relating to the liver transplant operation he underwent last year.

The players who started Sunday's game against Osasuna wound down with a light recovery workout while the remainder of the squad exercised at a more intense pace. Roura recovers Gerard Piqué who missed the Osasuna match through suspension and could return to the side for the Madrid game. Hosts Real Madrid will be without a number of their key players for the first leg - injury rules out Pepe and Casillas while Sergio Ramos, Coentrao and Di María are all suspended.

Taking part in Monday's training session was reserve team goalkeeper Oier, who was also called for Saturday's session while Pinto recovered from a cold. Pinto should enter the list for Wednesday match and like Vilanova and Guardiola in previous seasons, Roura is expected to stick with the deputy shot stopper for the remainder of Barça's Copa del Rey campaign.
