FC Barcelona returned to training on Friday morning as preparations continued for the tip top lay Atlético de Madrid with a tactical and physical session at the Ciutat Esportiva.
After having a day off on Thursday the Blaugrana stars were back at work ahead of the
weekend’s game in the Vicente Calderón. Gerard Piqué, Andrés Iniesta and Pedro were among the
18 participants as the trio missed out on Wednesday as they recovered from the Champions League
outing. Martí Riverola and Rubén Rochina were called up from the B team.
Jeffren Suárez continued with his personalised recovery programme as he waits to be given the
all clear by the medical team.
After warming up the squad played out a positional game that focussed on
tactical movement. A physical circuit was then introduced with medicine balls featuring. Pep
Guardiola paid special attention and pushed the players to produce even more intensity and
Pitch number 2 then hosted a game as rain began to pour down and freshened things up.
