FC Barcelona were out on the practice pitch Friday morning at 9.30am CET for their penultimate training session before their return to San Mamés for Sunday's league opener versus Athletic Club, with kickoff set for 6.30pm CET.

In addition to the usualy first-team players, Friday's workout on Camp Tito Vilanova at the Ciutat Esportiva featured Barça B youngsters Juan Cámara and Gerard Gumbau. The man of the day, however, was Aleix Vidal, who received warm birthday wishes from his teammates before the session began. Vidal turned 26 years old on Friday.
