Riyadh, Jan 12 (EFE) .- The Barcelona players held an activation session this Wednesday morning in the gym of the Narcissus Hotel in Riyadh (Saudi Arabia) before facing Real Madrid at 8:00 p.m. at the King Fahd International Stadium, in the first semifinal of the Spanish Super Cup.
There is optimism in the Barça expedition despite the fact that the whites get 17 points from them in the League. The recovery of key players such as Ansu Fati and Pedro González ‘Pedri’, and the registration of Ferran Torres have lifted the team’s spirits after the Granada draw.
“We are another team,” a club source told EFE. Also Joan Laporta, who yesterday joined the expedition after overcoming the coronavirus, has shown enthusiasm for the game during breakfast. Unlike Tuesday, today Barça will not go for a walk around the hotel before the classic.
On the other hand, in the ‘hall’ of the Narcissus Hotel appeared Arturo Canales, representative of Samuel Umtiti, renewed this week until 2026, Gerard Piqué and coach Xavi Hernández.
