The hard work continues for FC Barcelona. Just a day after beating Alavés at the Camp Nou (2-1) in a difficult match, the first team trained on Pitch 3 at the Ciutat Esportiva. The session was led by Ernesto Valverde and, aside from his injured players, Sergio Busquets, with gastroenteritis, was unable to participate. To make up the numbers, five players from Barça B joined the session: Fali, Marc Cardona, Aleñá, R.Tarín and Cucurella.
The Blaugrana will rest on Tuesday and return to work on Wednesday to prepare for the first leg of the Copa del Rey semi-finals against Valencia at the Camp Nou (Thursday, 9.30pm CET).
