Alexis in contention for Betis

Alexis Sanchez is reportedly set to be included in the Barcelona squad for their trip to Real Betis this weekend.

The Chilean returned to full training yesterday and is believed recovered enough from an ankle injury to warrant consideration for the trip south on Sunday.

However, it is understood that any inclusion will only come from the bench, with the midweek Copa del Rey tie away at Cordoba.

Alexis has missed the past four weeks of action with his injury, which was sustained not soon after he had just returned from a thigh strain.

The 23-year-old has made eight League appearances so far this season but has yet to register a goal and is without a strike in La Liga for Barca for eight months.
