Barcelona have been given an injury boost with the news that Rafinha has been declared fit and ready to return to first-team action.
The Brazilian has been out since April with knee trouble but has been back in training with the first team and has now been given the all-clear by club doctors.

Ready to play!
It remains to be seen if Rafinha will make the squad for El Clasico on Saturday, and it would be something of a surprise if he did after such a long absence.
However, it’s great news to have him back, let’s hope he can stay fit and show us all again what he can do.
Welcome back Rafinha!
