With just a few hours to go before the decisive Cup semifinal Barça-Valencia match, the FC Barcelona team trained at the Camp Nou. ‘The King of Cups’  (25 Cup titles, more than any other club), finalised preparations for tonight’s game under a sun that masked the low temperatures in Barcelona.

The available first-team players, plus Iniesta, Pedro and Busquets, trained with normality. Both Pedro and Iniesta still have not been given the medical all-clear to play tonight and Busquets’ match-readiness is still doubtful. Guardiola will make a last minute decision on the three players ahead of tonight’s match.

The Barça B players (Montoya, Bartra, Muniesa, Tello, Dos Santos and Sergio Roberto), also trained at the Camp Nou.

Lunch at the stadium

After the session, the team ate together at the Camp Nou. As usual, the team will have free time until an hour an a half before the match. All 23 players are due back at the stadium at 19.30, kickoff against Valencia is at 21.00.
