Maxwell had a nasty groin strain and Pedro had pubis trouble, but all that is now in the past.

Missing players

The players took to the field just after 18.00 at the Camp Nou for the usual warm up drills. Josep Guardiola, who spoke to the media before rather than after the session, was a few minutes late because the press conference overran a little.

24 players on the pitch

Pre-match plans

At 20.15 the players and coaching staff left the Camp Nou for Hotel La Florida, where they will stay the night and much of Tuesday. They will leave their hotel tomorrow to go to the Stadium, as usual on match days at home, for the final training session at 12.00 and behind closed doors.

Familiar faces

Oliveiro Jesús Álvarez González, better known as Oli, and who played for Oviedo, Betis and Cadiz, watched the session from the terraces along with Juan Carlos Carlos Unzué, the former Barça goalkeeping coach who is now manager of Numancia.
