Mascherano, Valdes back from injury for Barcelona

May 18, 2013

BARCELONA, Spain (AP) — Defender Javier Mascherano and goalkeeper Victor Valdes have recovered from injury and are available for Barcelona’s remaining three games of the season.

The club says Mascherano is fit again after he injured a ligament in his right knee during the Champions League game with Paris Saint-Germain on April 2.

Valdes had been sidelined recently with a right foot problem.

Barcelona, which clinched its 22nd Spanish league title last weekend, will still be missing injured top scorer Lionel Messi for Sunday’s game against Valladolid.
