Pique set for Barca return

Barcelona defender Gerard Pique is set to return to the lineup for Saturday's league clash at Levante.

The 25-year-old suffered a thigh injury in his team's 3-1 Champions League victory against AC Milan, which forced him to miss La Liga matches with Real Zaragoza and Getafe.

However, the Spain international has returned to training and appears ready to feature in Saturday's match with Barcelona sitting four points back of leaders Real Madrid.

Pique has appeared in 21 league matches for the Catalan side this season, scoring two goals.
