The first team trained today in preparation for Sunday’s clash with Levante. Rijkaard was able to work with all of the players at his disposition, apart from Rafa Márquez.

The session got under way with the typical drills although goalkeepers Víctor Valdés and José Manuel Pinto trained separately at this point with their own coach Juan Carlos Unzué.

Fitness and tactics

treball220208.jpgThe squad then worked simultaneously on two areas. Groups of four players practiced shots on goals defended by Valdés and Pinto, while the others did an exercise that focussed on positions for creating pressure and recovering the ball. The eight players taking target practice were Eto’o, Xavi, Gudjohnsen, Giovani, Bojan, Sylvinho, Zambrotta and Edmílson.

Once this part was over, the players that started in Glasgow went jogging and sprinting before retiring to the changing rooms. The other players continued with fitness circuits and shots on goal.
