FC Barcelona Regal trained on Thursday evening in the Sinam Erdem Arena in Istanbul, the venue of the Final Four of the Euroleague, which sees them face Olympiakos on Friday evening in the semi final. Xavi Pascual didn’t have a one hundred per cent fit squad, due to Juan Carlos Navarro suffering a recurrence of his plantar fasciitis trouble and Boniface Ndong having an intestinal virus. Both worked out less intensively than the rest of the squad, but also said afterwards that they had noted a marked improvement in their respective conditions.

Good memories

The players know the venue, for it was here that they faced Fenerbahçe last season in the group stages of the same competition, winning 69-75.

On Friday morning, Barça Regal will have one final session, focussing on shooting, before playing Olympiakos at 20.00.
