Guardiola names same squad
The first team trained on Monday at the Ciutat Esportiva instead of the Camp Nou, where they usually train on the eve of CL matches, in order to preserve the condition of the pitch. Pep has picked the same 19 players that he did against Hercules.
It was the second to last session before they open their European campaign against Panathinaikos,
and took place on pitch number 1 in Sant Joan Despí under intense heat. They started at 18.45,
after which Iniesta and Guardiola gave conferences in the Camp Nou pressroom.
20 players train, 19 in squad
18 first team
players, all except Jeffren, who has a leg injury, were joined by 2 from Barça B, Jonathan dos
Santos, who was also in the squad against Hercules, and Víctor Vázquez.
Guardiola had to drop one of the those ahead of the game on Tuesday, who was Víctor Vázquez,
meaning that the list is identical to the one against Hercules.
Visit from Javi Moreno
The session was attended by former Barça man Javi Moreno, by invitation of David Villa.
Moreno and Villa played together in Zaragoza in the 2004/05 season.
