Champions back at work


The Copa del Rey champions returned to work on Friday with their minds back on the League. And this weekend they have the chance to win their second title of the season.

There is no time left to enjoy the Copa del Rey win at Mestalla, because Josep Guardiola’s side got back to regular work this morning at the Ciudad Deportiva Joan Gamper. And they are just one point away from a league title that could be theirs very weekend.

There is a very good chance that Guardiola and his Barça side could finally seal the Liga title this weekend, which would leave them with ten pressure-free days to start concentrating on the Champions League final.

Everyone available
