Work continues at Ciutat Esportiva
After scoring twice at Mestalla, and with very little time for rest, the players were back at the Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper on Thursday.
The first team trained behind closed doors on pitch number 2 at the Ciutat Esportiva for the first
time since drawing in Valencia and now looking ahead to Saturday’s match with Atletico Madrid
at the Camp Nou. Recovery work was the main focus.
The session concentrated on the usual routine following a match, with the players getting
their bodies back into shape after a gruelling 2-2 draw on Wednesday night. As on other days,
Gerard Piqué trained normally with the squad, even though he has yet to be declared fully fit.
The first team was joined today by five players from Barça B, goalkeeper Jordi
Masip, and Marc Muniesa (who is recovering with the first team), Ivan Balliu, Carlos Carmona and
