After the match away to Celtic this Wednesday the first team spent the night in Glasgow and returned to Catalonia this afternoon. It was a little after 2 PM when Barça’s plane touched down at El Prat Airport.

Training session on Friday

Tito Vilanova, who decided to give his players the day off this Thursday, will lead the team in a training session tomorrow afternoon ahead of the Liga match against Mallorca, which is scheduled for Sunday at 17.50. The closed-door session will be held at the Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper. Dani Alves will talk to the press after the training session.

The Blaugrana will complete another training session before Sunday’s match on Saturday afternoon and travel to the Balearic Islands later that evening – a day before kick off. On this occasion, Vilanova will hold a pre-match press conference at 16.00 at the Ciutat Esportiva. The manager will talk to the press one hour before the team’s scheduled training session, which will also be closed to the public, at Sant Joan Despí.
