Barça completed their final training session at the Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper before Saturday’s match at El Madrigal. At the conclusion of the session the Barça manager named 18 players to the team: all 14 available first-team players plus Cuenca, Dos Santos, Sergi Roberto and Tello.

With the Club’s permission, José Manuel Pinto did not train with his teammates as he was attending to a personal matter.

Trip itinerary

The team will travel to Villareal on Saturday morning. The initial plan, however, was to travel to Castellón by train but the security authorities could not guarantee adequate safety measures at the Castellón train station. Hence, the team will travel to Benicassim instead. From there they will complete their journey to Villareal by coach.

The team will eat together at the hotel and depart for El Madrigal approximately one hour before the match. The game against Villareal starts at 22.00. After the game the team will return to Barcelona and arrive at 3.20.

The list

Valdés, Pinto, Piqué, Fàbregas, Puyol, Xavi, Messi, Thiago, Mascherano, Sergio Busquets, Adriano, Abidal, Alves, Pedro, Jonathan dos Santos, Isaac Cuenca, Sergi Roberto and Cristian Tello.
