Barcelona were back to work on Sunday evening as the team took part in their first training session after the Christmas break.
The majority of the first team were present, while Ansu Fati also joined in part of the session as he continues his comeback from a hip problem.

Inaki Pena and Carles Perez were also part of the group, while Moussa Wague missed out with conjunctivitis.
Sergi Roberto was also absent on compassionate leave after sadly losing his mother to illness on Saturday. A minute’s silence was held before the session.
