Barcelona confirmed on Tuesday that Philippe Coutinho has returned to training ahead of Saturday’s clash with Atletico Madrid at the Wanda Metropolitano.
The Brazilian has been out of action with a thigh problem and hasn’t featured since the 1-1 draw with Inter Milan in the Champions League.
⚽ Tornada als entrenaments dels jugadors disponibles del primer equip al camp 2. Coutinho fa part del treball amb el grup. També entrenen Miranda i Riqui Puig del @FCBarcelonaB.— FC Barcelona (@FCBarcelona_cat) November 20, 2018
Coutinho was originally ruled out for “two to three weeks,” but he looks to be closing in on a return to action and Barcelona will be hopeful he’ll be fit for the weekend.
The Spanish champions are already without Ivan Rakitic for the trip to Atletico after his red card against Real Betis last time out.
