Ivan Rakitic and Sergi Roberto have given Barcelona a fitness boost by returning to training ahead of Tuesday’s Champions League quarter-final second leg against Manchester United.

The two players were ruled out of Saturday’s trip to Huesca for different reasons. Rakitic was sidelined with a fever, while Roberto missed out due to a muscle problem.

However, the two players were back in training on Sunday as Barcelona turn their attentions back to their European campaign.

Barcelona will training again on Monday evening, their last session before the match, as they aim to book their place in the semi-finals of the competition.

Manchester United warmed up for the second leg with a 2-1 win over West Ham at Old Trafford. The Red Devils were far from their best but secured the three points thanks to two Paul Pogba penalties.
