Arda Turan came on as a substitute during Barcelona’s 6-0 victory over Sporting earlier today.

The Turkish international entered the field in the 75th minute in place of Ivan Rakitic. The La Liga giants went on to score three goals following Turan’s introduction.

Arda Turan was cleared as fit to play after missing training earlier this week due to an inflammation in his stomach.

Leo Messi opened the scoring in the 12th minute and Luiz Suarez went onto score four goals. Neymar scored Barcelona’s remaining goal.

Barcelona remain at the top of the Spanish league on goal difference after both Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid recorded wins this weekend.
