The team has begun a stretch of 9 days in which they will practice 2 or 3 times a day and squeeze in three friendly matches, all against lower sides: Navata, Vilamalla, and Reus. At least three players in Navata are hampered by injury:
- Mati is out of regular training sessions throughout the team's time in Navata, after aggravating a hip injury. I believe this is the same injury that plagued him for a while last year, so it is a concern for the team.
- Guille has been somewhat setback by blisters, but should be fine soon enough.
- Fuentes will be in physical therapy in the morning and participating in group sessions during the afternoons.
