No time for rest

Edgar Fornós

After sealing their cup final tickets, there is no time for rest, and the team gathered today for training as they prepare for a packed schedule of matches.

Pep Guardiola’s side went back to the Ciudad Deportiva Joan Gamper on Wednesday for a session that started at 12.00 after winning their way into the cup final at the ONO Estadi the night before. As usual after matches, the coaches put together a series of recovery activities. With a hectic programme of matches ahead, the players need to get their strength back as quickly as possible. On Saturday they have another match, at home to Athletic Club de Bilbao.

All but Alves and Abidal

The session was held on pitch number 1 at the Ciudad Deportiva, and involved the whole squad apart from Dani Alves, who stayed in the gym doing recuperation work and physiotherapy, and Abidal, who is still recovering from the injury sustained against Espanyol.

T hree from Barça Atlètic

As well as the first team, three members of the Barça Atlètic squad also joined the session. These were centre back Alberto Botía, and midfielders Rayo and Antonio Longás.
