Barcelona have been given an injury boost with the news that Sergi Roberto has returned to training after recovering from a muscle problem.
The 26-year-old has been sidelined since being forced off with the problem in the 1-1 draw against Athletic Bilbao at the end of September.
However, he returned to the training ground on Wednesday as the team prepare for Saturday’s clash with Sevilla.

It remains to be seen if he’ll be fit enough to start Saturday’s game, if not then Nelson Semedo will continue at right-back.
However, his return will be warmly welcomed with Samuel Umtiti and Thomas Vermaelen out and games against Inter Milan and Real Madrid up next after Saturday’s match.
