Following a pattern that has marked the month of January, the players will commence training this week focussed on not one but two vital matches, one each in the league and the Cup. On Wednesday Barça will travel down to Valencia (Cup semi-final first leg) while on Saturday they welcome Real Sociedad to the Camp Nou (La Liga).

The first training session of the week will be held behind closed doors at 11 am on Monday followed by a press conference with José Manuel Pinto. Next it will be the turn of Josep Guardiola, who will speak to the media ahead of Wednesday's Cup clash.

The squad will leave for Valencia on Wednesday morning for a 9 pm kick-off.  On Thursday, the players will be back at the Club's training grounds for a session beginning at 12 noon.

Friday afternoon

Another session has been scheduled for 6 pm on Friday and will be followed by the manager's pre-match press conference.  On Saturday, as is the norm on home matchdays, the players will have a final training session at 12.30.  The match against Real Sociedad will then kick off at 10 pm.
