2:37pm – Barcelona train in preparation for Spurs in Champions League

Barcelona are busily preparing for their next game as Ernesto Valverde’s side go in search of a first win in three outings.

The Blaugrana needed an 84th minute Munir El Haddadi goal to rescue a 1-1 draw at home to Athletic Bilbao on Saturday, a result which came on the back of a 2-1 defeat at La Liga’s bottom side, Leganes, in midweek, while Barca drew 2-2 with Girona prior to that.
