The team completed their final training session before tonight’s match against Espanyol (21:00). Behind closed doors at the Camp Nou, the 15 available first-team players trained with normality, including Xavi. IsaacCuenca, who is doubtful for the Catalan derby, continued with his recovery plan, as did Alexis Sánchez, who has been ruled out of tonight’s clash.
Tello, Bartra and Montoya also trained with the first team. Gerard Piqué worked apart from the group.
After the session, the team ate together at the Camp Nou and were then given free time. The players are due back at the Camp Nou an hour and a half before kick off.
