Umtiti fit and in the Barcelona squad for the Betis match
The French defender, injured before Christmas, has recovered from the muscle strain that's seen him out for eight weeks.
Ernesto Valverde has produced his Barcelona squad list for Sunday's big LaLiga match against Betis, at the Benito Villamarín (20:45 CET). And the good news for the Barça coach is the return of Samuel Umtiti who has been out for eight weeks with a hamstring injury.
Iniesta out, Paulinho in
Iniesta meanwhile drops out, while the coach also rules Denis Suárez. Despite a hairline fracture of his fifth metatarsal, Paulinho is in the squad. And Gerard Deulofeu and Aleix Vidal will also be on the team bus (and team plane).
