Change of scenery

The available FC Barcelona first-team players have trained at the club's Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper on Wednesday morning along with members of the B team squad.

After two days on the pitch in front of La Masia, there was a change of plan in midweek as the players took to pitch number three at the new training ground just outside of the city. The focus of the session was on the 50-minute practice match, which was played at an intense level and saw Eidur Gudjohnsen become the star.

Young stars

After the warm-up exercises, that lasted around half-an-hour, the players split into two groups for a game of 25 minutes per half.

The teams

On the bench were Gai Assulin, Busquets, Pedrito and Víctor Vázquez, who were all given a run out in the second half.

Gudjohnsen makes the difference

Marc Crosas won possession in midfield and picked out Bojan Krkic, who in turn found Gudjohnsen and the Icelandic international shot first-time at the near post and celebrated as the ball nestled into the corner of the net.
