Messi and Suarez fit for Espanyol clash

Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez have both been passed fit for Barcelona's derby clash with Espanyol this afternoon.

Messi picked up a groin injury whilst on international duty with Argentina, and Suarez suffered a sprained ankle in their last game, a 4-1 win away at Real Betis. 

However back up goal keepers Jasper Cillessen will not join up with the squad to face their local rivals, after picking up a thigh injury in training earlier this week.
