After the brilliant victory at the Bernabéu and this Thursday’s training session at the Ciutat Esportiva, Barça’s first team celebrated their recent success with a group meal, a fairly common occurrence in Can Barça. However, what was new about today’s traditional meal was the venue: for the first time the team ate in the dinning hall of the New Masía. Centro de Formación Oriol Tort.

The old and the new

The group luncheon also served as an introduction to the new facilities to some of the first team players. At the same time, some of the Masía-grown footballers took advantage of the situation to greet and meet with the workers and cooks that help run football boarding school.

None of the players recuperating from long-term injuries, David Villa, Ibrahim Afellay, and Andreu Fontàs, missed out on this afternoon’s luncheon. The Barça B players that were named to Barça’s Clásico squad were also present (Cuenca, Montoya, Sergi Roberto, and Dos Santos).
