After the win against Valencia (5-2) at Camp Nou, this Sunday saw a return to training to prepare for the Champions League opener against Borussia Dortmund next Tuesday. The available players from the first team worked out on Pitch 2 of the Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper, and those who played against Valencia did post-match recovery work. Leo Messi was back with the group, whilst Ousmane Dembélé trained with them for part of the session. Iñaki Peña, Morer, Chumi, Marqués and C. Pérez from Barça B, as well as Ansu Fati from the U19A side, made up the numbers.
The next session will be on Monday at 12.00pm CEST, the last before our European assignment. On Monday afternoon, the team will travel to Germany where coach Ernesto Valverde and a player will attend a press conference at Signal Iduna Park from 7.15pm CEST.
