Luis Suarez to make Barcelona debut in Saturday's El Clasico against Real Madrid.

The former Liverpool forward, 27, is available after serving a four-month ban for biting Italy defender Giorgio Chiellini at the World Cup in June.

"He will have some minutes for sure," said Enrique.

Barcelona go into the game sitting top of La Liga with champions Real four points behind in third place.

Suarez bit Chiellini during his country's 1-0 win over Italy in June and was initially suspended by Fifa from all football-related activity for four months and banned for a record nine competitive international games.

The ban was upheld by the Court of Arbitration for Sport (Cas) in August but the punishment was relaxed to permit the Uruguay striker to train and play in friendly matches.

He has since figured for the Spanish club and his country in non-competitive games.

"He is a fantastic player," said Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti. "For football and the league, it is great news he is back."
