Tough week ahead


This week’s training for the football first team is set to revolve around its League clashes with Betis on Wednesday and Espanyol on Saturday.

There will be no let up for Pep Guardiola’s players over the next few days. Barça has two League fixtures coming up this week and the manager has scheduled training for every day including matchdays.

First come Betis

After the resounding win over Sporting Gijon yesterday (1-6) the Barça players were back training this Monday at noon behind closed doors at La Masia. There they began gearing up for their fourth League match of the season, which will be against Betís this coming Wednesday at Camp Nou. There will be more training tomorrow Tuesday at 10.30 am and on Wednesday at 11 am. Both of these latter sessions will also be held at La Masia.

Three sessions before Espanyol clash

On Thursday, thoughts will turn to the side’s next match which is to be against Espanyol next Saturday at 10 pm. The players will have three training sessions before the derby encounter: on Thursday in the Miniestadi at 10.30 am; on Friday at the same time and in the same place; and finally on matchday at Camp Nou at 11.30 am.
Tough week ahead
Then comes the Champions League
Once the League games have been got out of the way, Barça will then start to focus on their vital second game in the Champions League group stage against Shakhtar Donetsk in Ukraine on Wednesday 1 October. Pep Guardiola has scheduled a noon session in the Miniestadi for the day after the Espanyol game, while on Monday training will kick off at 5.30 pm, again in the Miniestadi.
