Samuel Umtiti and Junior Firpo have both been declared fit for Saturday’s La Liga match against Eibar. Umtiti has been out for the last six weeks with a foot injury. He has yet to play this season and will be a more than welcomed addition back to the Barcelona squad.

Firpo on the other hand last appeared in a 2-0 win over Getafe in late September. He scored a goal in the match before injuring his hamstring. They need full-back depth, so Firpo’s return comes just in time for the pre-holiday rush of matches.

Barcelona confirmed the players would return this morning. This is after they appeared in Friday’s training and traveled with the team on Thursday.
