After the league victory against Getafe (0-2) and Sunday's rest day, Ernesto Valverde's squad returned to work on Monday morning with good news. Leo Messi and Ousmane Dembélé joined part of the training session with the team and continue their recovery process. The remaining available players from the first team worked out on the Tito Vilanova pitch at the Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper. Those who played against Getafe did post-match recovery work. Iñaki Peña, Guillem, Chumi, Mingueza, Sarsanedas and C. Pérez of Barça B made up the numbers. Jordi Alba, Umtiti and Ansu Fati also continued with their recovery.
The next training session will be on Tuesday at 5.30pm CEST, the last session before the return of the Champions League at the Camp Nou. Before training, at 4.30pm CEST, coach Ernesto Valverde and a player will attend a press conference in the press room of the Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper.
