The twenty players that have travelled with Luis Enrique trained on the pitch where, on Tuesday at 8.45 PM CET, they’ll be playing PSG in the Champions League group stage. The session lasted for an hour and the players wore the new yellow third strip, which they’ll be using for the first time in an official match at the Parc des Princes.

In what many are billing as the game between the two favourites to qualify for the knockout stage, Barça will be facing a PSG side that will have to get by without the injured Zlatan Ibrahimovic. Even so, Luis Enrique insisted in his pre-match press conference that he won’t be adjusting his tactics because of the Swedish striker’s absence, and commented that “PSG are a side that’s good enough to win the Champions League.”
