Arda Turan will return to the Barcelona squad and will hope to be involved against his old club Atletico Madrid, although Javier Mascherano will miss out.

The Turkish international has missed the last two weeks with a hamstring injury but is set to return for the Blaugrana for what will be their last ever match against Los Rojiblancos at the Vicente Calderon.

Mascherano – who sustained a thigh muscle strain in the Copa del Rey clash with Atleti a fortnight ago – has not recovered in time and will miss the trip.

The hosts will welcome back Jan Oblak and Diego Godin for the clash which will take the Catalans top of the league, for a few hours at least before Real Madrid travel to Villarreal, but should Diego Simeone – celebrating his 300th match in charge of the club – emerge victorious, Atleti would move to within three points of Barca.
