Iniesta, Xavi on the margins

Andres Iniesta and Xavi Hernandez have continued to work separate from the main group in training today at Barcelona.

The duo sat out yesterday’s return to work, with Xavi working to a specific routine and Iniesta suffering from a sore hamstring.

Barca have today confirmed that neither have returned to general preparations with their colleagues, with Iniesta reported as still suffering discomfort with the muscle in his left leg and Xavi revealed to be struggling with discomfort in the back of his right calf.

Full-back Jordi Alba continued his return to full fitness by training with his teammates for a second consecutive day, after more than two months out with consecutive thigh injuries.
