Barcelona returned to training on Wednesday morning after their 6-0 thumping of Club Leon on Monday night in the Joan Gamper Trophy.

There were 20 men from the first team squad, along with Munir El-Haddadi, Sergi Samper, Sandro and Alex Grimaldo from Barca B. 

Pedro, who was out of the Gamper, did not train because of his gastroenteritis, while Adriano completed part of the session with the group.

Thomas Vermaelen and Marc-Andre ter Stegen were training indivudually while they recover from their respective knocks. 

The first game of the season is on Sunday night against Elche. 

We could see this Barcelona side: Bravo; Alves, Mascherano, Mathieu, Alba; Busquets, Rakitic, Iniesta; Rafinha, Messi, Neymar.
