FC Barcelona returned to training on Monday with an evening session at the Joan Gamper Ciutat Esportiva. All available first-team players took part and were joined by Barça B goalkeeper Jokin Ezkieta. Given the two week stoppage for international qualifiers, head coach Luis Enrique gave those who stayed back three days off before returning to begin preparations for their next match. Barça host Rayo Vallecano at Camp Nou on Saturday at 8.30pm* on match day eight of La Liga.

The eleven players who were called to represent their respective national teams in a mix of 2018 World Cup and UEFA Euro 2016 qualifiers have yet to return. Some play their final international games on Monday and others on Tuesday, after which they will be rejoining Barça amidst preparations for Saturday's return to competition.
