Hleb back, Gudjohnsen out

Barcelona's Belarus winger Alexander Hleb will be available for this weekend's match with Athletico Bilbao after four weeks out injured, the club said on Thursday. Hleb, signed from Arsenal in the summer, picked up an ankle sprain in a 14 September match with Racing Santander.

But Icelandic international Eidur Gudjohnsen will be out for at least the next two matches due to a thigh injury. He is to undergo tests on Friday to determine the extent of the injury, according to Barca, who are currently fourth in the Spanish first division.
