It was the last but one training session for the players ahead of Sunday evening’s La Liga debut against Real Sociedad. Tito Vilanovahad all the available players to work with except for Thiago Alcántara, who continued with his personal training programme.

As was the case on Thursday and Friday, Carles Puyol and Jonathan dos Santos took a full part in training alongside their team-mates. Also taking part in the session were Tello and Sergi Roberto from Barça B.

The next –and last – training session before the league campaign gets underway against Real Sociedad (Sunday, 9 pm) will be at 12 noon on Sunday.
