Training schedule adapts to return of midweek football


The return of midweek European football is being matched by a change in the Barça training schedule for the games against Stuttgart and Malaga.

The players have been restricted to one match a week since being knocked out of the Spanish Cup by Sevilla at the beginning of the year. However, midweek football returns for Barça with Tuesday’s vital Champions League clash against Stuttgart. Four days later, the players face a league encounter against Malaga.
