Busquets missed their opening game which was a low-key 0-0 draw against Sweden in Sevilla as he was tested positive for COVID-19 during their training camp.

He has gone through a period of self-isolation and has returned to the squad in the last 48 hours and rejoined full training.

Although there have been concerns over his fitness to complete an immediate return,

Luis Enrique

has confirmed that his new captain is ready and prepared.

“He is a very important reinforcement for everyone because he has an important relevance on the pitch and he is the captain”

, Enrique told a pre-match press conference with



“He has trained alone at home, but the GPS he has brought in shows he is in perfect condition.

“I will evaluate with my staff where he is up to. But he is included on the list and the positive news is that he is back.”

It seems a recall for Busquets is the only starting change Enrique opts to make against Poland with Rodri set to rotate out.
