Neymar and Ivan Rakitic in Barcelona squad for Wednesday's match at Malaga

Neymar and Ivan Rakitic have overcome knocks to be named in Barcelona's squad for Wednesday's match at Malaga.

  • Published: , Refreshed:

Both were on target in the 5-0 win over Levante on Sunday but picked up injuries in the Liga clash.

It was revealed on Monday that the duo were being monitored and undertook "specific exercises" in training in a bid to return to full fitness.

And they were given the all-clear to play after coach Luis Enrique named them in his 19-man squad, which did not include the rested Dani Alves or Jeremy Mathieu.

A tweet from Barca confirmed: "Rakitic and @Neymarjr passed fit and included in the squad to face Malaga."

Barca will be looking to make it five wins from five La Liga games when they travel to the Estadio La Rosaleda.
