After a four-day break, training resumed for the first team on Tuesday morning at the Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper, with several of the international players back from representing their national teams.

Marc-Andre Ter Stegen, Jasper Cillessen, Luis Suárez, Ousmane Dembélé and Samuel Umtiti all reported back for duty at a session where they were also joined by Juan Miranda and Riqui Puig of Barça B,

Sergi Samper and Malcom both continued with their recovery work.

The focus is on this weekend’s trip to the home of Real Sociedad, Anoeta, where Barça have generally struggled to get positive results in recent years – although last season they broke the ‘curse’ with an impressive 4-2 win in San Sebastian.
