Barcelona injury news: Jules Kounde could line up against Real Madrid

Jules Kounde hasn't played for Barcelona in nearly a month due to injury, but he could be in the lineup this weekend against Real Madrid.



Jules Kounde

has returned to training, providing a significant fitness boost for Xavi's team ahead of this weekend's match against

Real Madrid


After suffering a thigh injury while on international duty with France, the 23-year-old has not featured for Barcelona since their 3-0 win over Elche on September 17.

Barcelona did not provide a timetable for Kounde's return, but head coach


said earlier this week that the centre-back could play against Real Madrid on Sunday.

And the former


man took part in training at Ciutat Esportiva on Thursday, helping to alleviate the Catalan giants' injury woes. In addition to Kounde, who has started five times for Barcelona since his formal registration in late August, Memphis Depay, Franck Kessie, Andreas Christensen, Hector Bellerin, and Ronald Araujo have all been ruled out.

Xavi's team drew 3-3 with Inter on Wednesday, leaving their Champions League ambitions hanging by a thread, but they are level on points with Madrid at the top of LaLiga after winning seven straight games, six of which were clean sheets.
