Santi Ezquerro was the star of a practice match during a lively training session at the Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper complex that saw all the players not on international duty participate in.

In the last session of the week where the first team mixes with the B side, the players took part in a game after a quick warm up.The players were split into two sides and even included substitutes.

Goalkeepers Víctor Valdés and Oier did not play as they worked separately with Juan Carlos Unzué. Víctor Vázquez was also unable to join in after receiving a knock.

There were no goals in the third period, which the B team used to prepare for their encounter with Vilanova at the weekend.
