The FC Barcelona aeroplane from Pamplona touched down at El Prat at about 11.15. Having qualified for the quarter finals of the Copa del Rey after knocking out Osasuna the night before, the players headed for the Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper. On Sunday at 21.30 they welcome Betis for a league fixture, for which reason they need to start getting ready as quickly as possible.

Recovery session

Guardiola had his full squad available apart from the injured players and Keita, who has left for the African Nations Cup. The first eleven against Osasuna did recovery work, while the others plus Alves and Iniesta, who didn't travel to Navarra, underwent a more intense session. They were also joined by Cuenca, Montoya, Sergi Roberto and Jonathan dos Santos from the B team.

On Saturday morning at 11.00, there will be another session. That will be behind closed doors at the Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper. Pep Guardiola will be giving a press conference straight after.
