The second training session before the always complicated journey to San Mamés on Sunday was held behind closed doors. Like on Thursday, the venue was a wet Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper.

20 players involved

The same players were on pitch number 2 in Sant Joan Despí as the day before, the 19 fit first team players plus reserve team winger Isaac Cuenca. Injured Pedro Rodríguez continued with his treatment programme in isolation from the others.

Barcelona will train again on Saturday at 11.00 in the Ciutat Esportiva. Afterwards, Pep Guardiola will be speaking to the press.
