Last session before the game
Monday also brought the last training session at the Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper ahead of the game. The Tito Vilanova field was the venue, and although he was not named in the squad, Ronald Araujo was able to join the rest of the group as he presses on with what look to be the very final stages of his return to full fitness.
