Philippe Coutinho and Yerry Mina are in line to make their Barcelona debuts in Thursday evening’s Copa del Rey quarter-final meeting with Espanyol.
The pair, who joined on permanent deals from Liverpool and Palmeiras respectively earlier this month, have so far been made to wait for their first competitive run-outs.
Coutinho arrived at Camp Nou carrying a thigh injury that was expected to rule him out until February, but he may now make his return to action ahead of schedule in the second-leg tie.
There is also a place in the 19-man squad for Mina, exactly a fortnight on from making his £11m switch to Catalonia amid far less fanfare than Coutinho attracted.
Paco Alcacer and Andres Iniesta have recovered from injury problems of their own, meanwhile, as Barca look to overturn a 1-0 deficit on home soil.
