BARCELONA, September 18 (RIA Novosti)
Barcelona full-back Jordi Alba trained separately from the rest of the team Tuesday ahead of Barcelona's Champions League clash with Spartak Moscow.
Alba missed his team's 4-1 over Getafe with illness and his participation in the Spartak game had been in doubt, although Barcelona coach Tito Vilanova said Tuesday: "He can train."
In the 20 minutes of the session open to the media , Alba split from the main group after five minutes and jogged laps of the Camp Nou pitch with a coach.
Injury doubt Chilean forward Alexis Sanchez remained with the main group throughout, as did striker David Villa, who recently returned from eight months on the sidelines.
A surprise inclusion was B team forward Gerardo Deulofeu.

News that Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin would resign in order to run for the mayoral election in September came as quite a shock. Sobyanin’s political potential is fairly dubious, not to mention his approval ratings. He has not finished many of the projects he initiated and the electoral effect from these projects is expected to come a bit later than September 2013. Sobyanin’s opponents were not entirely unprepared for this blitzkrieg.
