Focus on el clásico

Marc Guillén / Aida Soriano

FC Barcelona trained on Sunday evening as preparations continued unabated for the visit of Real Madrid. Pep Guardiola had 18 players at his disposal with only Gaby Milito and Thiago Alcántara absent.

Having had Friday off, after booking their place in the next stage of the Champions League with a win in Greece against Panathinaikos , the players returned to work on Saturday and again on Sunday as the coaching staff made last minute checks on every aspect of the game ahead.

Cold conditions

The cold played its part as the players dressed appropriately to ensure that none of them were affected by the onset of winter temperatures. Milito was not present as he continued to work on his recovery programme from injury while Thiago appeared for the juvenil side in their win over Espanyol.
