There was no rest following Wednesday night’s 3-1 win over Olympiakos, as manager Ernesto Valverde had his men back out on the practice field Thursday morning, when the rain that had begun the previous night was still going strong.
Wednesday night’s starters did recovery work and Arda Turan was back with the group. Three reserve players and one from the Under-19 team also took part in a session that served as the beginning of Barça’s preparations for its next match — Saturday’s La Liga encounter with Málaga at Camp Nou.
Barça will train again on Friday afternoon, hopefully under clearer skies. Valverde will attend to the media before the team heads out to the field.
