In a break with the usual league pre-match routine, the players will spend the night in the Hotel NH Constanza near the Camp Nou.  The players reported to the Camp Nou at 8.15 pm for last minute instructions from the coaching staff before travelling to the nearby hotel where they will spend the night.  They are due back at the stadium at about 10.30 am on Sunday.

Speaking at a press conference earlier on Saturday, Jordi Roura explained: “We are spending the night in the hotel in order to have an appropriate supper and breakfast at the correct time”.
