The first team took to the training pitch this Saturday morning at the Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper to prepare for tomorrow’s Catalan derby against Espanyol (kick off at 19.00). The session was led by Tito Vilanova, who watched yesterday’s open training session from his office.

All available first team players trained with complete normalcy, while Éric Abidal, who focused on rehabilitation work recovery, and Isaac Cuenca, who worked out in the gym, trained apart from the main group. Adriano Correia, who withdrew from training on Friday, trained with the group.

FC Barcelona’s next training session is scheduled for Sunday morning at the Camp Nou hours before kick off against Espanyol, that's when Tito Vilanova will unveil his squad for the derby.
