Adriano back to Barca training

Adriano is back in training with Barcelona after a brief illness and is understood to be back in contention for the weekend.

The Brazilian full-back missed Thursday’s session with an intestinal virus, a day after playing in the Copa del Rey match at home to Alaves.

He was thought to be a doubt for Saturday’s visit of Athletic Bilbao, but in returning to today’s workout, is understood to be fully recovered and back in contention.

Marc Bartra and Alexis Sanchez still trained separately on the field from their teammates and were joined in their recovery session by Eric Abidal.
