First training session in Krakow

Edgar Fornós

Barça have played their first training session on the field that will be used for their Champions second leg match against Wisla. Barça don’t want any nasty surprises and are keen to smoothly seal their passage into the group stages.

The team exercised on a pitch in excellent conditions, and the weather, with the temperature of 17 degrees, was ideal. They used the same kind of ball as they will use in the actual match against Polish league outfit Wisla Krakow.

Pinto a last minute doubt

Pinto worked out with the team, but with less intensity. Pep Guardiola has taken the precautionary measure of also travelling with Barça Atlètic’s Ruben Miño.

Wisla out for revenge

Wisla Krakow are desperate to prove to Barça that they are capable of much more than they were able to achieve in the first leg at the Camp Nou. Polish manager Maciej Skorza has said the team will go out in full force from the start, but knows that the challenge is a difficult one. He also has central player Cantoro suspended and is also missing the injured Sobolewski and Glowacki.
