Immediately on arrival from Milan, where, on Tuesday, they played the first leg of the quarterfinals of the Champions League, and where they stayed until this Friday as a preventative measure due to Thursday’s general strike, Pep Guardiola’s team went straight to the Camp Nou. There the team trained in the first of two sessions planned before facing Athletic Club on Saturday night, in the League.

Adriano back with the group

In addition to the 21 players who travelled for the game against AC Milan, Adriano trained, and began to work with the main group on Friday, together with Éric Abidal. Remember that, in Adriano’s case, the Brazilian suffered a muscle strain in his right thigh, in the game against Granada on the 20th of March.

On Saturday morning, as usual on match days at the Camp Nou, the players will end up polishing details for the match against Athletic Club, which kicks off at 22.00, so they go into the game with maximum guarantees. They’ll do that at a workout scheduled to start at 12.30. Then the group will have lunch together at the Camp Nou, and will have some free time until they have to be back at the stadium, at 20.15.
