Light training session prior to final

Sandra Sarmiento / Jordi Clos

The twenty man squad that will meet Nàstic tonight in the final of the Catalonia Cup had their last training session this morning at the La Masía training grounds.

The players took part in a light training session on Tuesday morning ahead of the Catalonia Cup final between FC Barcelona and Nàstic in Palamós (21:45, Barça TV). In the absence of both Rijkaard and Barça B coach Guardiola, the session was directed by Neeskens, Eusebio and Unzué. The players present were Valdés, Jorquera, Ezquerro, Oleguer, Sylvinho, Marc Crosas, Córcoles, Víctor Vázquez, Dimas, Fali, Jeffren, Emilio, Gai, Thiago, Xavi Torres, Víctor Sánchez, Rueda, Botía, Pedro and Abraham.

Work with the ball

The coaches had designed a light session bearing in mind the proximity of tonight’s match. After warming up, the players practised passing and then divided up into groups to practising passing and sprinting.

The session finished with crosses into the box and shooting/heading practise with tonight’s final very much in mind.
