The blaugranas completed a recovery session following their latest La Liga victory against Málaga (2-0). They trained on pitch three at the Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper. Ernesto Valverde’s first team players were joined by seven Barça B players: Arnaiz, Aleñá, Cucurella, Oriol Busquets, Vitinho, Carles Pérez and Ortolá.
Paulinho was allowed to miss training by the coaching staff and the starting XI completed recovery work. The squad turned its attention to Tuesday’s match against Múrcia at the Nueva Condomina for the Copa del Rey round of 32. Barça have won the cup competition in the last three seasons. The blaugranes are going to train at the Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper at 6.00pm CET on Monday.
The opening 15 minutes of training will be open to the media and Ernesto Valverde will hold a press conference. Ter Stegen, Sergio, Iniesta, Suárez, Messi, Paulinho and Umtiti will not train on Monday and they will rejoin the group for Wednesday’s training session at the Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper.
