Barça trained on Tuesday at the FC Twente Stadion in Holland, the venue where Xavi Llorens’ side will face their Dutch opposition on Wednesday at 7.00pm (live streaming on fcbarcelona.com) in the first leg of their last 16 UEFA Women’s Champions League tie.

It was cold and wet for the Barça Women’s team during their session but the playing surface is in perfect condition. The stands were empty but on Wednesday it will be a different story with a record attendance for a women’s football match in the Netherlands expected with a crowd of over 13,000 expected.

The game against FC Twente is the latest challenge faced by the Barça Women’s team this season.
