The team has a league fixture on Wednesday to start preparing for/ MIGUEL RUIZ-FCB

With no time to rest after the 2-1 defeat at home to Valencia on Sunday, the FC Barcelona players were back at the training ground on Monday morning as they began preparations for the first of the five remaining fixtures in the league, a visit to Deportivo on Wednesday evening at 8.30pm CET.

The full first team squad was on the Tito Vilanova field at the Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper, where they were also joined by Borja López of Barça B on another hot day in the Catalan capital.

Naturally, there was a despondent mood after the setback at the Camp Nou. It might have been a fine performance from the team, but luck just was not on their side and the result has further narrowed the gap at the top of the table.

But Barça are still top thanks to their better head-to-head record against Atlético Madrid. So after winning five of the last seven Liga title, matters are still very much in their hands. But they now need the three points from the trip to La Coruña more than ever. It’s time to remind everyone why they call this the best team in the world.
