The first team trained on Saturday morning on the Tito Vilanova pitch at the Ciutat Esportiva, with their minds on Sunday evening’s league fixture against defending champions Atlético Madrid. Luis Enrique was able to count on the presence of Jeremy Mathieu, who did all of the exercises despite not yet being confirmed as fully fit. The squad was joined by Barça B’s Munir.
Xavi Hernández worked out separately as he battles to recover from a minor soleus injury in his left leg.
