Samuel Umtiti was back in full training on Wednesday and is expected to be fit for Saturday’s La Liga game against Real Mallorca.

There have been concerns over the defender’s fitness after he sat out the club’s last two sessions but he was back as usual with the group.

Barca are without Clement Lenglet due to suspension for the match which means Umtiti is likely to return to the starting XI alongside Gerard Pique.

Saturday’s match will be played behind closed doors at the Iberostar Stadium, as will their Champions League game against NApoli and next La Liga fixture against Leganes.
