This afternoon, at 19.00 at the Camp Nou, the FC Barcelona players completed their final training session ahead of tomorrow’s Super Cup clash with Real Madrid. As is tradition when a title is in play, Tito Vilanova will take the entire FC Barcelona roster with him to Madrid on Wednesday, with the exceptions of Abidal and Muniesa.
Puyol participates in part of the group session
Thiago, who started training with the team on Monday, trained with his team-mates once again this afternoon. Carles Puyol, who is recovering from a cheekbone fracture he sustained in the match against Osasuna, participated in a portion of the group session. Barça B’s Tello also trained with the team.
The team will depart from the Camp Nou at 10.15 for El Prat Airport. Barça’s plane is scheduled to take off at 11.00, and reach Madrid 55 minutes later. The team will go directly to their hotel, where they will stay until they head off to the Santiago Bernabéu. The match against Real Madrid will start at 22.30. After the match, Tito Vilanova’s team will leave Madrid at 2.00, and arrive in the Catalan capital an hour later.
