The Barça squad is mentally preparing for a week that will bring two La Liga clashes. After taking the three points from Seville, the Azulgranas will hold a closed-door training session this Monday at 18:00 at the Ciutat Esportiva Sant Joan Despí to prepare for La Liga’s Matchday 29. Pep Guardiola will hold a post-training press conference.

Granda, the first opponent

The coaching staff have scheduled an afternoon training session for Tuesday at the Camp Nou to finalise preparations for the clash with Granada. The game will be played later that evening at 21:00. With no time to rest, the Azulgrana team will return to work the next day, Wednesday morning at 11:00, at the Ciutat Esportiva Sant Joan Despí.

Deserved rest and trip to Mallorca

On Thursday, however, the team will have a deserved day off before returning to work on Friday to prepare for the match against Mallorca.

The team will add finishing touches to their game plan during a training session that’s scheduled to take place at 11:00 at the Ciutat Esportiva. The team will depart for the Balearic Islands on the same day. Barça will take on the team led by Joaquín Caparrós at 18:00 on Saturday. After a frenetic week, the team will enjoy a day off on Sunday.
