Barça play the third game of their preseason this evening in Geneva. Having left El Prat Airport this morning, they touched down in Switzerland at around 12.30 PM CET. They are taking a 22-man squad, which doesn’t include the World Cup semi-finalist that only returned on Tuesday, or Mathieu, Xavi and Patric, who all have minor fitness concerns.

President Josep Maria Bartomeu is meeting the players in Geneva, while vice-president Jordi Mestre, directors Jordi Moix and Pau Vilanova, and director of sport Andoni Zubizarreta were all on the same flight from Barcelona as the squad.

Shortly after arriving, Jordi Alba and Claudio Bravo will be giving a press conference in the team hotel, while the directors of FC Barcelona and tonight’s opposition, Napoli, will be having lunch together.
