BARCELONA, Spain (AP)

Barcelona says holding midfielder Sergio Busquets has recovered from a leg injury and has been included in the squad for Saturday's home game against Sevilla.

Busquets hurt a muscle in his right leg that forced him to miss Spain's World Cup qualifier against Finland last Friday.

Barcelona coach Gerardo Martino also recalled Xavi Hernandez and Alexis Sanchez after resting them for one game.

The Argentine manager left out forward Pedro Rodriguez.

Barcelona is perfect through its first three Spanish league games. It opens the Champions League at home against Ajax on Wednesday.
