Luis Enrique is hoping to have his captain back available for selection. He should have Andres Iniesta back for the game against Eibar on Sunday.
Barcelona’s captain trained with the group on Saturday after his injury which has kept him out of action for nearly a month, sustained against Bayer Leverkusen on September 29.
He is set to receive his medical clearance to play on Sunday morning, before Luis Enrique gives his squad for the match.
Even if Iniesta is fit, he still may not be selected to start by the coach.
For his part, Lucho brought in Gerard Gumbau from the B team to join the training squad on Saturday, as has been habitual in recent weeks.
