FC Barcelona get straight back to training for Saturday's trip to Valencia
After putting four goals past Manchester City, the first team head back to the Ciutat Esportiva to start getting ready for the next game - at Mestalla in two days' time

These are happy times at FC Barcelona after the extraordinary result against Manchester City on Wednesday night. But there has been little time for celebrations following the 4-0 victory because there’s a league trip to Valencia (Saturday at 4.15pm CET) to get ready for.
So it was straight back to the training ground on Thursday morning, where Luis Enrique got the players that featured in the Champions League game to work on recovery exercises, while also drafting in reserve team players Alberto Varo and Marlon Santos for a session on a chilly day at the Ciutat Esportiva.
The players have one more workout, this time in the late afternoon at 5.00pm CET Friday, before flying south to Valencia, where they’ll be spending the night.
