Barcelona stars made a timely return ahead of the El-Clasico on Saturday as Jordi Alba and Gerard Deulofeu shook off their respective injury to train with the rest of the squad.
Alba looked sharp and trained perfectly with the rest of squad, he was fizzled out of the first team during the Luis Enrique’s last season.
The Spanish left-back is enjoying a good campaign under Ernesto Valverde, he has more freedom to express himself on the pitch with the freedom to push forward and attack.
Deulofeu has also been spotted training with the rest of the squad on Thursday.
Ousmane Dembele and Rafinha Alcantara also trained with the senior team but it remains uncertain if the pair will feature against Real Madrid.
Samuel Umtiti is a major doubt to play in the El Clasico, Paco Alcacer and Arda Turan are still out injured.
Real Madrid is 11 points behind Barcelona on the La Liga standings but the La Liga Champions have a game in hand due to their involvement in the World Club Cup tournament in Dubai.
