The first team were back at training on Friday morning after being given Thursday off to recover from the successful trip to Lisbon.

The new focus of work at the Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper is on Sunday’s home fixture (4.45pm CET) against UD Las Palmas (TICKETS HERE) where Barça will be looking to keep their 100 per cent start to the Liga campaign intact going into the October break for internationals.

Thomas Vermaelen was missing from the workout after going down with a bout of gastroenteritis.

The warm morning, with barely a cloud in the sky, was perfect for photography, and that was a very good thing indeed because today was the day of the offical squad photo including, as has become a tradition at the club in recent years, a picture of the men’s and women’s first teams together.
