Anna Segura

The first team has flown off to Munich, where they will be meeting Bayern tomorrow at 18.00 in the last game before the league programme starts.

FC Barcelona’s pre-season continues. They set off on Tuesday for Munich, where they are to face Bayern Munich  with Mark Van Bommel (18:00, Barça TV and Barça TV Online) in a game where the prize on offer is the Franz Beckenbauer Cup.

Major expectation

The 20 players in the squad , plus the coaching staff, left the Camp Nou at 16:45 for El Prat airport. They have a charter flight to catch at 18.00, but before that there were the usual autographs to sign and photographs to pose for as they made their way through the hundreds of tourists coming and going at the airport.

The expedition is being led by vice president Alfons Godall, director Rafael Yuste, and general manager, Anna Xicoy. The FC Barcelona president, Joan Laporta, will be joining the travelling party on Wednesday at midday.

Thirty supporters

The squad were joined on the flight by a group of 30 supporters who have decided to travel to Bavaria and enjoy Barça’s last game before they start their league programme. The group included former club president Agustí Montal.
