Barcelona have revealed that Andres Iniesta could come into contention for Saturday's trip to Getafe.
The gifted playmaker has been out of action for three months with a thigh muscle injury.
He has not featured for Barca since their UEFA Champions League final success over Manchester United at the end of May.
The 25-year-old was also forced to pull out of Spain's Confederations Cup campaign this summer.
He is, however, closing in on full fitness and is expected to be back in the fold at Barca in the near future.
A viral infection has slightly delayed his return, but Pep Guardiola could return him to the heart of his midfield this weekend.
