On Wednesday morning, the members of the Barça first team who are not away on international duty, together with a number of players from Barça B (Matheus, Peque Polo and Nils Mortimer) plus Fermín López the U19A side, played a practice match against RFEF club UE Cornellà.
The game offered a perfect chance to get back into the competitive mind-set ahead of Sunday’s 9.00pm CEST kick-off at home to Valencia.
The game on the Tito Vilanova field at the Ciutat Esportiva ended 2-2, with Kun Agüero and Philippe Coutinho scoring for Barça and Àlex Pla and Eloy Gila netting for their guests.
Agüero, in his first game experience in his new blaugrana jersey, was on for the first 30 minutes as part of his recovery programme, while Alejandro Balde also got a run-out towards the end.
Spanish internationals back
The four Spain internationals, Sergio Busquets, Sergi Roberto, Eric Garcia and Gavi although Roberto was the only one took part in the game (having only played seven minutes of Spain’s two games last week).
The other three joined Ousmane Dembélé in a set of specific exercises.
There will be a normal training session on Thursday morning at 11.00am CEST at the Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper.
