Barcelona trains, takes photos with young training invaders

Tuesday March 15th, 2016

Three young Barcelona fans had quite the experience on Tuesday.

A day before Barcelona takes on Arsenal in the second leg of their Champions League round-of-16 series, the club trained per usual only to have three youngsters run onto the field. Instead of having security usher them out, Barcelona's stars took a different course entirely: They integrated them into training, posed with them for pictures and signed jerseys.

According to Spanish outlet Mundo Deportivo, two 10-year-olds and one 12-year-old skipped school and took advantage of an opening during the part of the session open to media.

Watch what happened below ("invasion" begins at 1:32):

Barcelona carries a 2-0 edge into the home leg after a pair of goals from Lionel Messi in the opening leg.
