Neymar looks like he'll be fit to face Manchester City next Tuesday in the Champions League.

The Brazilian has been confirmed in Gerardo 'Tata' Martino's squad to play Real Sociedad tonight, according to The Daily Mail.

Barcelona lead 2-0 from the first leg, so Martino may look to get his young superstar some minutes towards the end, should Barca be comfortable in the tie.

The Blaugrana also face off against Rayo Vallecano at the Camp Nou on Saturday evening, another chance for Tata to ease back Neymar before Tuesday's first leg v City.

It will be a double blow for Manuel Pellegrini, as two of his key players, Fernandinho, and top scorer Sergio Aguero, are both expected to be out for another week or so.

Align that with the re-emergence of Lionel Messi's form and the fact the Blues haven't scored in two matches and the Chilean's task looks a lot more daunting than it did two weeks ago.

Neymar has enjoyed life at Barcelona so far, integrating into their tiki-taka style right away. The 22-year-old has endeared himself to the Barca faithful from the off. Playing from the left, he has six league goals including opening the scoring in Barcelona's Clasico victory back in October.
