Neymar and Sergio Busquets ease Barcelona fitness concerns

Neymar and Sergio Busquets are set to be fit for Barcelona's La Liga clash with Malaga at the Camp Nou on Saturday to ease Luis Enrique's selection concerns.

Neymar has been absent for three weeks due to the mumps but has now returned to full training with the squad.

Busquets was substituted, along with Dani Alves, during Sunday's 1-0 victory at Athletic Bilbao with serious looking injuries.

Barca subsequently announced that Alves had suffered a groin strain but Busquets had avoided any significant ankle injury, and while the former will not be available this weekend, Mundo Deportivo reports that the latter will feature despite having yet to resume full training.

Neymar and Busquets' availability is a boost to Luis Enrique, who remains unable to register new signings and has seen forward Pedro Rodriguez leave for Chelsea and centre-back Gerard Pique suspended for four games.

Alves' absence leaves the coach with an issue, though, with the Brazil international having been withdrawn from his country's squad for the upcoming games against Costa Rica and United States in early September.

With right-backs Douglas and Adriano Correia injured and Martin Montoya having left for Inter Milan this summer, versatile La Masia graduate Sergi Roberto, 23, looks set to stand-in for Alves during the coming games.

Barca are still to decide whether to appeal Pique's suspension, with a key La Liga game at Atletico Madrid to take place after the international break on Sept. 12.
