The full Barça squad was at the Ciutat Esportiva on Thursday morning, with all of Messi, Mascherano, Neymar, Sergi Roberto, Mathieu, Ter Stegen, Sandro and Munir back under the orders of Luis Enrique. That meant it was the first time the whole team was able to train together ahead of this weekend’s visit by Eibar.

Rafinha was also there, despite not being declared fully fit, but Douglas worked out on his own. Barça B’s Sandro, Munir and Samper also featured in a jovial session, where the players had plenty of fun with the first exercise, which involved playing with an oversized ball.

There will be another workout on Friday morning in Sant Joan Despí, after which Luis Enrique will be giving a press conference ahead of the home fixture against Eibar, which kicks off on Saturday evening at 8.00 PM CET.
