For the third consecutive year, the football players from FC Barcelona’s male and female first teams came together for an official photo. They were joined by the president of FC Barcelona, Josep Maria Bartomeu, and the two coaches, Ernesto Valverde and Lluís Cortés.
The photo session took place on the Tito Vilanova pitch at the Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper in what was a great atmosphere.
Ernesto Valverde's men face a crucial game to keep alive their Champions League hopes this week. On Wednesday, Barça receive Lyon in the second leg of the Round of 16, where a win will guarantee their presence in the quarter-finals. In addition, they will face Betis at the Benito Villamarín at the weekend, hoping to get a result that allows them to keep the same distance between themselves and their nearest pursuers.
The women's team have three games in just eight days. Lluís Cortés’ side will play two league matches, the first of which is on Tuesday 12 against Real Sociedad. Then, on Sunday 17 against Atlético Madrid, there’s a crucial match which could dictate the outcome of the Iberdrola League. Just three days later, the Champions League returns, where Barça Women will host LSK Kvinner FK at the Miniestadi in the quarterfinals (Wednesday 20, 7.00pm CET).
