Barcelona defender Ronald Araujo declared fit after concussion

Deportivo Alaves v FC Barcelona - La Liga Santander

Barcelona were forced to start with a fourth setback last week against Getafe but should have something very similar to their first selection this weekend.

Blaugrana will face Villarreal on Sunday and although the Catalans have nothing on the line at the Camp Nou, Villarreal play European football in seventh place.

Standing in their way could be Ronald Araujo. The Uruguayan defender suffered a concussion against Celta Vigo in their 3-1 win on May 10 and was rushed to hospital.

When he was removed from any problems, he was released and has already returned to training over the weekend. He did not mention Barcelona’s trip to Getafe yet, with Clement Lenglet and Oscar Mingueza playing in his place.

On Saturday though Araujo has been given medical treatment to play against Villarreal and could be on Xavi Hernandez’s preferred list.

According to Sport, Barcelona players will have to wait for their holidays as they have a trip to Australia to complete at the end of the season.
