Following the fantastic 7-1 win over Osasuna, the first team trained on the Tito Vilanova pitch at the Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper. The players looked relaxed as they turned their attention to Saturday’s Barcelona derby against Español at the RCDE Stadium at 8.45pm CET in what will be the second La Liga game of the week. The match will once again require a top draw performance from the team if they are to continue to put pressure on Real Madrid in the league title race in these final four fixtures.
Luis Enrique had the available first team players at his disposal and the starting eleven form last night’s match took part in a recovery session. Carles Aleñá, Carbonell, Marlon and Abeledo from the Barça B team also took part.
