Jordi Alba has been included in Ronald Koeman's Barcelona squad for Saturday's Clasico against Real Madrid at Camp Nou.

The left-back trained on Friday and was past fit for the game this weekend. He has been sidelined since injuring his hamstring against Sevilla on Oct. 5. 

Koeman says he could even come straight into the side if he doesn't have a reaction following Friday morning's session, although it will also depend on how Alba feels. 

Alba was replaced by Sergiño Dest against Sevilla and Dest continued at left-back after the international break for games against Getafe and Ferencvaros. 

Goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen is still injured, though, so Neto will continue in goal for Barça against Madrid.
