Barcelona could have goalkeeper Claudio Bravo back fit in time for the early October game against Sevilla.
Chile international Bravo is recovering from a hamstring injury and hasn’t played for La Blaugrana since late August’s 1-0 win over Malaga.
Marc-Andre Ter Stegen has deputised but has come in for criticism as Barca leak goals, including four in the defeat to Celta Vigo on Wednesday.
AS report that Bravo is making good progress in his rehabilitation, although this weekend’s visit of Las Palmas to Camp Nou will come too soon.
The trip to Sevilla a week later is understood to be a more reasonable target for the ex-Real Soceidad stopper.
