On time, Eusebio Sacristan’s players turned up at the training pitch in TorreMirona (Navata,
Girona) to begin their second day of training. At 9.30 the reserve team players started the session

down a defence of up to 6 players. Then, to finish the session, they played a few games in midfield
to practice the concepts learned on the pitch.

In addition, Sergi Gomez, Rafa Alcßntara and Gerard Deulofeu are in Las Rozas (Madrid)
