Barcelona pair Adriano and Thiago have returned to training, in good signs for the La Liga leaders.

Although the pair are unlikely to be included for Barca's trip to fourth-placed Levante at the weekend, their returns to the track are a positive for manager Tito Vilanova.

Thiago tore ligaments in his right knee in the game against Sevilla in September, while Adriano sustained a thigh injury in the win over Celta Vigo earlier in November.

Barcelona are top of the Spanish top-flight table with 34 points from 12 games, holding a three-point lead over second-placed Atletico Madrid.
