Iniesta, Xavi, Tello return

Barcelona have recovered Andres Iniesta, Xavi Hernandez and Cristian Tello for their midweek Champions League test with Celtic.

The Catalans welcomed the trio back to training on Monday after respective spells on the sidelines with injury and all three have been included in Tata Martino’s latest matchday squad.

Iniesta, who missed last weekend with a thigh complaint, Xavi similarly with a calf issue and Tello, who has been out for four games with a sprained ankle, have today all received medical clearance.

For the 20-man party to face Celtic at home in the closing match of Group H on Wednesday evening, B team players Dongou and Adama are also listed, whilst Dani Alves is still absent, continuing to work separately in training.

Cesc Fabregas and Isaac Cuenca miss the midweek call, with the former serving a suspension.

Barcelona squad to face Celtic: Pinto, Olazábal, Montoya, Piqué, Puyol, Xavi, Pedro, Iniesta, Alexis, Neymar Jr, Mascherano, Bartra, Sergio, A. Song, Jordi Alba, Tello, Adriano, Sergi Roberto, Adama, Dongou
