Barcelona v Gijon – probable line ups – Arda Turan fit to start

Barcelona take on Sporting Gijon today as the Catalan giants look to defend their place at the top of the league.

Arda Turan has been cleared as fit to start after missing training earlier this week due to an inflammation in his stomach.

The Turkish international was an unused substitute in Barce’s 8-0 win over Deportivo La Coruna.

Barcelona put an end to their poor run of form. The Catalan giants lost last three successive games against Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid and Valencia prior to yesterday’s result. Barca have been knocked out of the Champions League and have seen their 10 point lead at the top of the table reduced to being leaders based on goal difference.
