Barcelona defender Adriano has been passed fit and named in his side's 18-man matchday squad for their La Liga clash at home to Rayo Vallecano.
The versatile 30-year-old has been missing since suffering a thigh injury in the victory over Las Palmas on September 26 - the game which also saw Lionel Messi sidelined - but came through medical checks on Saturday.
Thomas Vermaelen is not yet fit to return from a calf injury and there was no place for goalkeeper Jordi Masip.
Twenty-year-old B team player Gerard Gumbau, who has already played twice in the league this season, is included in the party.
Barcelona squad to face Rayo: Bravo, Ter Stegen, Douglas, Pique, Rakitic, Busquets, Alves, Suarez, Neymar, Mascherano, Bartra, Munir, Alba, Sandro, Sergi Roberto, Adriano, Mathieu and Gumbau.
