Barcelona: Barcelona midfielder Rafinha was given the all clear to return to action on Monday after eight months on the sidelines due to a knee injury.
The Brazilian international hasn't featured since limping off early in April's 4-1 win at Granada with a meniscus problem.
"FC Barcelona player Rafinha was medically cleared by doctors on Monday," the club said in a statement.

Rafinha is expected to have to wait until the new year to make his return, though, with Barca boss Ernesto Valverde insisting he doesn't want to take any risks for this weekend's El Clasico away to Real Madrid.
