Light session before game

David Saura (special correspondent) / Anna Segura

The first team trained this morning at Washington University in Seattle in their last session before the Seattle Sounders game.

As they did before the Los Angeles Galaxy game, Barça had a lighter session this Wednesday morning in Seattle. In cold conditions Josep Guardiola’s men trained at Washington University.

The squad split into two for this, with half doing the set piece moves and the other half playing keep ball.

Valdés is practically ruled out of the Seattle Sounders game with a knee problem, while Ibrahimovic can train but not play. Iniesta spent the morning in the gym to get back into shape after a virus.
