Barcelona team news

Turkish international star Arda Turan has settled in remarkably well to his new team making nine appearances since making his debut for Barcelona against rivals Espanyol last month.

Turan took to social media to share a picture of his new teammates referring to them as his ‘big and happy family’.

Barca have won all nine games that Turan has featured in since and the bearded winger already has three assists to his name. The reigning La Liga champions have scored a whopping 35 goals and conceded five during the same time period.

Turan made a late appearance in the 6-1 victory over Celta Vigo on the weekend after recovering from a foot injury.

The 29-year-old winger is expected to feature in the away game against Sporting Gijon tomorrow in the league and will be hoping for his seventh start.

Barcelona are currently first in the La Liga and will go six points clear of second placed Atletico Madrid with a win.
