Iniesta trains ahead of Chelsea tie

Barcelona captain Andres Iniesta has completed a training session ahead of Wednesday night’s tie with Chelsea, according to reports in the Spanish press.

Iniesta lasted just 34 minutes of last Sunday’s top-of-the-table clash at Camp Nou against Atletico Madrid, and Barca’s official website immediately confirmed the presence of “a hamstring injury in his right leg”.

The 33-year-old was absent during Saturday’s 2-0 victory at Malaga with concerns that he would not return to fitness in time for the Champions League clash on Wednesday.

However, Onda Cero reporter Alfredo Martinez now reports that the club captain has been involved in Monday’s training and should be available for selection against the English champions.
