Luis Enrique has been handed a boost with the news that midfielder Miralem Pjanic has been passed fit to play at the weekend.
The Bosnian international, who only recently returned from a different injury, pulled out of yesterday’s session at Trigoria due to a muscle strain.
However, after returning to the group today and taking a full part in training, the 21-year-old has been cleared as fit to feature at the weekend.
