Marc Bartra, Javier Mascherano and Leo Messi joined Barcelona's training session despite having holidays. And they were not the only ones, as Rakitic, Rafinha and Ter Stegen also joined the group after having played with the national team. The players are now focused on next Liga match after two weeks without playing. This Sunday, they will travel to Vigo to face Celta (9pm CEST). Last time Barça played after an international break, they lost against Real Sociedad, so they must take this match seriously.

Thomas Vermaelen kept doing part of the training with the rest of the group, as he has been doing during the last week. The squad was completed by Barça B striker Munir el Haddadi. 

No doubts good news of the session was seeing Messi running. The medical tests he underwent this morning were ok. Barça will train again this Friday.
