Barcelona have been boosted by the news that Cesc Fabregas could return to action this weekend.
The former Arsenal skipper has been sidelined for three weeks with a thigh problem.
But he joined in training on Monday and is now pencilled in for a return this weekend against Sevilla.
Fabregas could have been involved for their midweek UEFA Champions League clash with Viktoria Plzen, but Pep Guardiola has opted to save him for the weekend.
Whilst Fabregas is on his way back, Gerard Pique has been sidelined with a similar injury.
Pique suffered the problem against Racing Santander at the weekend and is now expected to be out until November.
