Barcelona midfielder Carles Alena back today for Barca B

Barcelona midfielder Carles Alena is set for a playing return today.

Aleña has been given the green light to return to action and has been named in Barcelona B's squad for Sunday's game at Sabadell, says Sport.

Aleña ruptured a tendon in his right hamstring in the Barça B clash with Real Zaragoza at the beginning of June.

As a result, he missed what would have been his first full preseason with the first team.

However, his recovery has gone quicker than expected and on Saturday he was cleared by the club's medical staff to return to action.
