Frenkie de Jong is back from injury and in Barcelona’s squad for Thursday’s match against Osasuna at the Camp Nou.

The Dutchman has been out for a little while with a calf problem and has only featured once since the restart because of the injury.

His return will be a boost for Barca ahead of their final two games and the return of the Champions League in August.

Quique Setien spoke about the Netherlands international in his pre-match press conference and said he would play some part in the match either as a starter or a substitute.

De Jong’s last outing came in Barcelona’s 4-0 win over Real Mallorca which saw him subbed late on and then miss the club’s next eight games.
