Roura expects Barcelona coach Vilanova back for derby today
If everything goes to plan, Vilanova will be on the bench for the match after spending a few days in New York.
Roura explained: "He's come back from New York in excellent spirits and happy. The tests went well and he's looking good to me.
Roura has been a key figure throughout the recovery of his boss and told reporters.
"I took on this responsibility in a relaxed and straightforward way. I just tried to make the manager's absence have as little effect as possible".
