Villa in Germany pictures: Players train ahead of VfL Bochum
Paul Lambert oversaw a morning and afternoon session at the German training base.
The likes of Brad Guzan, Ron Vlaar, Antonio Luna, Nicklas Helenius, Leandro Bacuna, Marc Albrighton, Gary Gardner and Ashley Westwood were all involved.
Lambert will have been interested in the intensity levels of the players as he prepares them for their 2013-14 Barclays Premier League campaign.
But he will also have had one eye on the quality on show as he prepares for the final game of the German tour.
After 1-1 draws with Rodinghausen and Paderborn, he will hope for a victory against Bochum, although getting the lads up to speed with match fitness will be his ultimate aim.
Once again, club photographer Neville Williams was given access to both sessions.
