Barcelona's Neymar available for Cordoba clash

Barcelona: Barcelona forward Neymar has recovered from a minor ankle problem and is available for Saturday`s La Liga game at home to Cordoba, the club said on Friday.

Neymar has not played since he scored Barca`s second goal in the 3-1 Champions League victory at home to Paris St Germain on Dec. 10 and missed last weekend`s 0-0 La Liga draw at Getafe and Tuesday`s King`s Cup game against Huesca.

He trained with the rest of the squad on Friday before being given the all-clear by medical staff as Luis Enrique`s men prepare for their final outing before the two-week winter break.

"Neymar trained normally on Friday morning," Barca said on their website (www.fcbarcelona.es).

Neymar`s Brazil team mate Dani Alves, who has a hamstring strain, was unable to train with the squad, they added.

A win for Barca at the Nou Camp would close the gap to leaders Real Madrid to one point.

Real`s game at home to Sevilla has been postponed until early February due to their participation in this week`s Club World Cup in Morocco.

Neymar has been on fine form this season and has scored 11 goals in La Liga and three in the Champions League.
