Nikola Mirotic should be ready for FC Barcelona’s Liga ACB clash against Real Madrid. Mirotic missed Barca’s clash against UNICS, after testing positive for COVID-19 last week.

The Spanish giants have dropped their three last games in EuroLeague, after facing a surge in COVID cases the last 20 days.

Barca is placed second in Euroleague standings with 16-5, while they hold an 11-3 record in the Spanish league. Real Madrid is ranked first in both competitions, ahead of the Catalans.

Mirotic has been great for FC Barcelona this season, having his best season in the two years he’s back in Spain. The 30-year-old forward averages 16.3 points this season across 35 games while also adding 5.5 rebounds and 1.3 assists per game.
