Any semblance of good news is considered great news in Barcelona land as of late. This week, the news we get to hold onto is that a grouping of Barcelona players who’ve had some knocks are all considered fit for this week’s Champions League match against Dynamo Kiev.

Ansu Fati, Ousmane Dembele, Frenkie de Jong, and Ronald Araujo have all trained and have the go-ahead to return to matchday fitness.

The four players are all in the squad for the match which Barca must win to have a chance of qualifying for the last 16. The Catalans took all three points in the reverse fixture with Gerard Pique scoring in a 1-0 win at the Camp Nou.

As we’ve seen of late, Barcelona need all the help they can get in the attack. So Dembele and Fati both being fit are fantastic news. De Jong being fit is of obvious help and no one needs me to say how important he is the Barcelona midfield.
