Training session with all available players

Barça completed its penultimate training session before tomorrow’s clash with Milan. Breaking from team routine, the players trained at the Ciutat Esportiva instead of at the Camp Nou. All available players were present, including Xavi, who once again trained with normality.

After the session, the players relocated to Hotel W of Barcelona. They will train once again – on Tuesday at noon at the Camp Nou – before tomorrow’s match against Milan.
