Barcelona have been handed a boost on the personnel front ahead of their meeting with Granada.
Granada vs Barcelona
Barcelona are set to play out their second La Liga clash of the year on Saturday.
La Blaugrana will face off with Granada at the Los Carmenes stadium on Saturday evening.
Barcelona head into the game sat 5th in La Liga. Hopes of catching Real Madrid to mount a late title challenge are all but dead in the water for Xavi Hernandez and co.
However, they are sill very much in the race for a Champions League spot.
Ahead of the Granada match, Barca are just one point adrift of 4th-place Atletico Madrid, who have lost four of their last five.
Competition, though, remains very stiff at the top end of La Liga, with Rayo Vallecano, Real Sociedad, Villarreal and Valencia all within three points of Barcelona.
So, it is probably fair to say that their meeting with Granada is a must-win for the Catalonian powerhouse.
Gavi negative for Covid-19
Now, ahead of the game, Barcelona have been handed a boost on the personnel front.
Despite being 17, Gavi has been a key member of Barcelona’s side this term, notching 23 appearances across all competitions.
However, the young midfielder has missed Barca’s last two outings due to Covid-19.
But, as reported by Gerard Romero, Gavi is ok to feature vs Granada and has already tested negative for the virus:
🚨Gavi OK para mañana. El futbolista ya ha dado negativohttps://t.co/vrsj4XOUJL
