Gabi Milito and Carles Puyol have been included in Frank Rijkaard's 18-man squad for the visit of Atlético de Madrid on Sunday.

Despite being unable to appear in the Champions League encounter against VfB Stuttgart in midweek, Milito has been given the green light to play, as has Puyol after he recovered from a strain in his leg. Club doctors told the duo that they were able to appear after training on Saturday, so Rijkaard has included them as Santi Ezquerro is the only fit player left out of the squad.
