Barça are in Granada. Following their training session at the Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper they made their way to El Prat Airport for a 7.00pm CET flight. Just over an hour later, they touched down in the Andalusian city.

From the airport, they were transferred directly to their hotel, where they’re getting some rest before Saturday’s 5.00pm CET start against a side that assured first division football for another year with a win at Sevilla a week ago.

To ensure the very finest team spirit, manager Luis Enrique, who is looking to lead the team to a second Liga title in a row and the 24th in its history, has opted to take his full squad on the trip, including the injured Bravo and Sandro.

They are also being joined by a number of FCB executives, led by president Josep Maria Bartomeu. He’s accompanied by Jordi Cardoner, first vice-president; Jordi Mestre, vice-president for the Sports Area, and board members Javier Bordas, Silvio Elías, Maria Teixidor and Enric Tombas. Directors Jordi Moix and Oriol Tomàs will be meeting them there.
