Coutinho has been cleared to make his debut at Camp Nou as Barca look to overturn a 1-0 defeat to Espanyol in the first leg of their quarter-final clash. Coutinho spent six months with Barca's city rival on loan in 2012. Club captain Andres Iniesta and striker Paco Alcacer were also included in the 19-man squad for Thursday's game as was Colombian defender Yerry Mina, another transfer window recruit.
