The second session in the Far East started at 20.00 am CET, and came 24 hours after the first session since arriving. The venue was the Yokohama Marinos training ground, and the Clubs World Cup was on everybody's mind. FC Barcelona's first opponent in its bid to win the title for the second time will be Al-Sadd of Qatar.

Nobody missing

The session was open to the media and involved all 23 players that have flown to Yokohama. After a warm-up and circuit training, they divided into three groups for games on a downsized field. Wearing blue were Piqué, Fontàs, Adriano, Xavi, Messi, Pedro and Alexis. In organe bibs were Maxwell, Puyol, Keita, Cuenca, Cesc and Alves. The side with no bibs was formed by Abidal, Thiago, Iniesta, Villa, Mascherano and Dos Santos. Sergio Busquets acted as a wildcard, rotating between teams, and goalkeepers Valdés, Pinto and Oier were all rotated.
