The players return to training on Monday after Saturday's defeat of Real Sociedad.  They will be focussing on Wednesday's clash against Valencia in the Camp Nou. Then, hot on the heels of the Cup semi-final second leg comes a tricky away game in the Reyno de Navarra against Osasuna.  Then it's just three days to the Champions League encounter away to Bayer Leverkusen.

The first training session of the week will be at 11 am on Monday followed by a press conference with Javier Mascherano.  An extra highlight of the day will be a chance for the players to test drive a new Audi Q3 on an off-road track at the Club's sports complex.

Tuesday afternoon session

On Tuesday the players will train at 6 pm.  Pep Guardiola will then talk to reporters ahead of Wednesday's Cup match (kick-off Wednesday 9 pm).  The last training session before the match will be held behind closed doors on Wednesday morning at 11.30.  The players will have lunch together and then go their separate ways until reporting back to the stadium at 7.15 pm.

Regardless of what happens against Valencia, the players will report for training again at noon on Thursday and 11 am on Friday.  The Barça party are due to travel to Pamplona on Saturday morning.  On Sunday they will be back in Barcelona preparing for Tuesday's game away to Bayer Leverkusen.
