Thiago & Adriano resume Barcelona training

The Brazilian wing-back and the young midfielder are both on the road to recovery after an injury lay-off and could make their comeback shortly
Barcelona coach Tito Vilanova has received some encouraging news from the treatment table in the build-up toward this weekend's La Liga match away against Levante as Adriano and Thiago have resumed regular training.

Thiago tore ligaments in his right knee in the game against Sevilla on September 29, and has since been working on his recovery.

Adriano, meanwhile, sustained a thigh injury in the win over Celta Vigo earlier this month, and consequently missed the games against Celtic, Mallorca, Zaragoza and Spartak Moscow.

It appears unlikely that Thiago and Adriano will be included in the match squad for this weekend's encounter, but the duo are expected to resume match action shortly.

Barcelona currently sit atop of the Primera Division table with 34 points from 12 games, holding a three-point lead over second-placed Atletico Madrid.
