With no time for rest, Barça got back to training on Monday to prepare for the game with Levante. After the session, Bojan and Maxwell were both given the medical all-clear.
Tuesday at 11.00
The squad will next be gathering for training at 11.00 on Tuesday morning, once again at the Ciutat
Esportiva Joan Gamper. Afterwards, Josep Guardiola will be speaking to the press ahead of the
league fixture with Levante on Wednesday evening.
After beating Espanyol 2-0 on Sunday at the Camp Nou to move to within a point of the Liga title,
Barça trained on Monday with the Levante fixture on Wednesday on their minds. As Guardiola said in
his press conference, the third league championship in a row is in their own hands. Not
surprisingly then, the atmosphere at training today was particularly jovial.
Bojan declared fit…
Bojan Krkic, who has been training normally for the last few days, was given
medical clearance today after damaging cruciate ligaments in his left knee in the Almeria match at
the Camp Nou on April 9. Since then, he has been receiving treatment.
… and Maxwell too
But that was not the only good news at the Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper today. It
was also announced that Maxwell, who suffered a hernia in the Osasuna game on April 23, is also
back to full fitness and is available for selection.
Warm-down session; Puyol and Adriano in isolation
As usual on the day after matches, the first eleven against Espanyol only did gentle
warm-down exercises. As on other days this week, Puyol and Adriano worked separately from the main
group with fitness coaches.
8 reserve players
Josep Guardiola also drew upon eight members of Barça B, namely Thiago, Edu Oriol,
Abraham, Carmona, Bartra, Benja, Masip and Tello.
