Turan was greeted by Turkish reporters after the game who commented on the crowd chanting the bearded wingers name.

Both players joined Barcelona in the summer but Barcelona were unable to register either player due to serving a FIFA transfer ban which expired in January.

Turan was given a starting spot on the right of the midfield trio while Vidal came on as a second half substitute.

The 28-year-old winger is expected to feature for Barcelona on the weekend against Granada in what will be his La Liga debut at the Camp Nou on Saturday 9 January.
