Preparations continue for crunch encounter

Vanessa Forns

Barça held their second to last training session before the last game of the season against Valladolid, a game they have to win to be guaranteed the championship for the second year running.

Josep Guardiola and his men are just a day away from the big match, and like on Friday gathered behind closed doors at the Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper, only this time the rain had been replaced by sunshine - with Dani Alves proclaiming aloud his joy to see that the clouds finally seem to have dispersed.

The session began with a brief team talk in the centre of the field, followed by the usual warm-ups and practice drills.

Maxwell also appeared for the first time since he was hit with a femoral biceps injury against Sevilla, which will see him sidelined for about three weeks.

As usual on match days, Barça will hold their finally training session on the morning of the match, which will be at 11.30 and once again behind closed doors. The squad will then eat at the Camp Nou before being given some free time before meeting up again at 17.15.
