Barcelona have been boosted by some key fitness news ahead of their La Liga trip to Athletic Club tomorrow.
La Blaugrana will be looking to react to Real Madrid’s 3-1 win over Espanyol this weekend as Carlo Ancelotti’s side cut the title gap to six points overnight.
Xavi makes two changes to his matchday squad following their scrappy 1-0 home win over Valencia last time out.

Spanish star Gavi is back involved, after serving a one game ban against Los Che, and he could be immediately reinstalled into the starting XI.
One certain change will come in defence, with Xavi dropping a hint over Eric Garcia replacing the suspended Ronald Araujo, and Robert Lewandowski back from injury.
Lewandowski has missed the last two matches, due to a hamstring problem, and he has started 19 of his 20 league appearances this season.
The Polish veteran’s return is expected to mean Ansu Fati drops down to the substitutes bench.
