Suarez fit for Barcelona's clash with Celta Vigo

Barcelona will field plenty of firepower in attack this weekend with news that Luis Suarez is available for Saturday’s match against Celta Vigo, the Catalan side announced on Friday.

Suarez was forced to miss Barcelona’s disappointing goalless draw against Slavia Prague due to a calf injury he picked up in last weekend’s 3-1 loss to Levante.

But the Uruguayan has been included in Barcelona’s matchday squad after being declared fit to play.

Suarez leads Barcelona scorers with six goals over nine league matches.

Saturday’s match at the Camp Nou could also include the return of Samuel Umtiti, who has been limited to just one outing this season due to various injuries.

Despite being even on points with rivals Real Madrid, Barcelona continue to sit atop La Liga due to their superior goal differential.
