Josep Guardiola called on nine players from Barça Atlètic to take part in the session - Thiago, Victor Vazquez, Benja, Illie, Elvis, Espasandín, Armando, Benítez and Luque.

Of these players, only Thiago made the starting line-up in Barça Atlètic’s 1-1 draw on Saturday against Logroñés. Victor Vazquez came on for the last 35 minutes of the match while Espasandín was on the subs bench. The remaining reserves who trained with the senior squad today were not involved in Saturday’s match.
