Dmytro Chygrynskiy has been given the green light to return to playing again by FC Barcelona doctors and will be available for selection for the game against Real Zaragoza this weekend.

The Ukraininian defender has completely recovered from the knee ligament injury that he suffered on September 26 in the game against Málaga in La Rosaleda. Tests carried out immediately after he suffered the knock indicated a three-week lay-off and he has now been told that those were accurate and that he is fit to return to action.

Two league games

Apart from the two Champions League game, against Dynamo Kyiv and Rubin Kazan, wihc Chygrynskiy is ineligible for, the former Shakhtar star has missed two league encounters due to his injury as he was unable to play in the 1-0 win against Almería in Camp Nou or the goalless draw against Valencia last weekend in Mestalla.
