Ancelotti confirmed in a radio interview on Thursday that Dani Carvajal would return at right-back.

Barcelona coach Luis Enrique says Luis Suarez will play some part in Saturday's La Liga clasico at Real Madrid, but will not reveal if the attacker will start the game or enter from the bench.

The 80 million-euro summer signing from Liverpool will finally be free to play for his new club, with the four month ban imposed for biting Italy's Giorgio Chiellini at last summer's World Cup ending on Friday night.

After competing in a handful of behind-closed-doors matches for his new club and a pair of...
