Jordi Alba back in Barcelona squad

Barcelona boss Luis Enrique includes Jordi Alba in his Champions League squad for Tuesday's clash with Bayer Leverkusen, but Claudio Bravo is still unavailable.

Spanish left-back Jordi Alba has been included in Barcelona's squad for Tuesday's Champions League game at home to Bayer Leverkusen.

Head coach Luis Enrique revealed on Monday that the Spanish international had overcome a neck problem ahead of the European match, while also confirming that first-choice goalkeeper Claudio Bravo had returned to training.

Alba makes the squad, but the same cannot be said for Bravo, who has not been included despite overcoming a calf injury, which means Marc Andre ter Stegen should deputise once again.

Adriano, Lionel Messi, Rafinha and Thomas Vermaelen are also still unavailable for the Catalan side, but Douglas has returned following a period on the sidelines.

Full squad

Goalkeepers: Ter Stegen, Masip

Defenders: Alves, Douglas, Pique, Bartra, Mascherano, Mathieu, Alba

Midfielders: Busquets, Roberto, Rakitic, Iniesta, Gumbau

Forwards: Munir, Sandro, Neymar, Suarez

Barcelona opened their Champions League Group E campaign with a 1-1 draw away to Roma on September 16.
