The squad touched down in Malaga this lunchtime, ahead of their first away game of the season. Tata Martino's side face Bernd Schuster's Malaga at La Rosaleda without Leo Messi, whose bruised thigh meant he didn't travel.

The squad arrived at Malaga airport just after noon and the players and coaching staff went straight to the team hotel. Club board members Toni Freixa and Pilar Guinovart accompanied the players, alongside director of football Andoni Zubizarreta.

The players will stay overnight in Malaga and return to Barcelona on Monday morning.
