Full squad on the pitch
Marc Guillén / Vanessa Forns
All of the first team plus five of the reserves trained on Friday at the Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper as they prepare for Sunday’s trip to Getafe.
In the second session since the draw against Copenhagen, Josep Guardiola had 18 of his team with
him. The only man missing was Jeffren, although, as on Thursday, he did spend some time on the
field with a fitness coach as he battles back from the injury sustained against Ceuta.
Xavi, Messi, Piqué and Iniesta missed Thursday’s session to
concentrate on gym work, but were back to the normal routine today.
The two Alcántaras together
Some members of Luis Enrique’s reserve team also joined the first
team stars, namely Thiago Alcántara, Saúl Berjón, Marc Bartra and Carles Planas, plus youth player
Rafa Alcántara. That meant the Alcántara brothers were playing together at the Ciutat Esportiva
The usual warm-up drills were followed by a series of fitness exercises.
