Double duty on Friday

Friday will be the only day the squad will train twice. Rijkaard will be fine tuning things for the league commencement in sessions at 10.00 and 18.30, both in La Masia..

Weekend plans

The build-up ends on Saturday with a final session before the game in Santander on Sunday. At the end of the session, Frank Rijkaard will announce the official squad and the players will head north that evening and to stay the night in the city where they face Racing in the first game of the new league season.
