Champions League and League this week


This Monday the first team have begun preparations for Wednesday’s Champions League clash with Sporting Lisbon and Saturday’s League fixture away at Seville.

This week Josep Guardiola’s men have two key away matches in their challenge for the Champions League and Spanish League titles. On Wednesday in Portugal, Barça could ensure top spot in their CL group, while on Saturday in Seville they will be looking to stay at the top of the League table.

Portugal first

After Sunday’s draw with Getafe (1-1), the Barça players were back training this Monday at 11 am behind closed doors at La Masia in their last session in Barcelona before Wednesday’s game. On Tuesday morning they will be off to Lisbon, where they will train at 7 pm in the José Alvalade stadium, venue for their match with Sporting Lisbon.

Then back to the League

The players will have little time to rest before they start getting ready for Saturday’s League fixture on Thursday at 5.30 pm. Training sessions are also lined up for Friday at Camp Nou at 11 am and on Saturday morning.

In a break with their usual routine, Barça will not go to Seville the day before the game. On Saturday they will train at 9.45 am before heading south. Training is also scheduled for 12.30 pm at La Masia on Sunday.

To Seville on the morning of the match
Barça will be travelling to Seville on Saturday, the day of their thirteenth League fixture this season. This is not what the team usually does, but it has happened before; for instance this season they went to Benidorm on the day of the away leg of their King’s Cup tie.
