At Thursday's workout, Barça’s attention trained squarely on Eibar
Following two days off, the team was back at the Ciutat Esportiva to continue preparations for Saturday’s La Liga duel in the Basque Country
FC Barcelona held its second training session of the week on Thursday morning, just over 48 hours ahead of its next La Liga match, which puts it against in-form SD Eibar on Saturday afternoon. Kickoff at the Ipurua Municipal Stadium is set for 4.15pm CET.
Barça opened the week with a recovery session on Monday — following Sunday’s scoreless draw with Getafe at Camp Nou — and was granted a pair of rest days on Tuesday and Wednesday, before returning to work on Thursday.
Thomas Vermaelen and Ousmane Dembélé were out on the practice field Thursday, as was Barça B’s CarlesAleñá. The session also produced a tender moment for striker PacoAlcácer, who was congratulated by his teammates on the birth of his first child — it’s a girl! — the day before.
