Strategy takes over


If during the morning session Josep Guardiola’s men worked on the more physical aspect, in the afternoon session ball control and especially strategy took over.

The Mini-stadium was again the scene for Barça’s preparatory session this Saturday afternoon. After the morning session, where physical training was dominant, in the afternoon session it was all about tactics.

Albert Jorquera and Marc Crosas were again missing.

Defensive work

The players involved in practising the defensive work were those who played in the first eleven against the New York Red Bulls, that is, Valdés, Alves, Puyol, Márquez, Abidal, Keita, Xavi, Iniesta, Hleb, Henry and Eto’o.

The rest of the players practiced one touch football.

Light training

Before the strategy work, the team played a game to make the training a little lighter. The coaching team have been clear since the start that they want to make warm ups more varied and fun.
