Arthur is back in Barcelona's squad for Wednesday's Copa del Rey semi-final second leg away to Real Madrid following a hamstring injury.

Barca announced on February 8 that Arthur had suffered a strain - a problem which it was thought would keep him out of action for a month, thus forcing him to miss the Clasico double-header, with the great rivals also tussling in LaLiga on Saturday.

But head coach Ernesto Valverde hinted in his pre-match news conference earlier on Tuesday that the Brazil international could feature in the Copa, and he has subsequently included Arthur in the traveling squad.
