Junior Firpo was back in Barcelona training on Thursday after recovering from a hip injury that has kept him out of action for the last two games.

The left-back and Frenkie de Jong both took part in the session which means only Samuel Umtiti and Ousmane Dembele are on the injured list.

Quique Setien said earlier this week the club were hopeful De Jong would be able to feature on Saturday against Real Valladolid, while Junior also looks set to be fit for the clash.

Barcelona will, of course, be without Ansu Fati for the trip to the José Zorrilla Stadium. The forward’s red card against Espanyol on Wednesday means he is facing a ban, the length of which is yet to be confirmed.
