The first team finished preparing last-minute details ahead of the match against Sporting Gijón this Saturday afternoon in a closed-door training session at the Camp Nou. The same footballers that trained yesterday - 15 first-team players and Tello, Muniesa, Dos Santos and Sergi Roberto - trained today. Thiago, who is dealing tibia problems, trained apart from the group.

It’s worth remembering that Guardiola will not be able to call on the suspended first-team players Messi and Busquets or the injured Abidal.

After the session, the team ate lunch together at the stadium and will have free time until 18:30, at which time they will return to the Camp Nou. The match will start at 20:00.

The training session was followed by the U21 Spain manager, Luis Milla. The manager and La Masía graduate played for Barça between 1988 and 1990.
