Boost for Barca ahead of Chelsea clash

Barcelona has been handed a huge boost ahead of Champions League return leg match on Wednesday against Chelsea with Andres Iniesta fit for the clash.

The Spanish international was doubtful for the return leg having limped off with a hamstring injury in his side’s win over Atletico Madrid last weekend. The Catalans were sweating over his fitness after he played a role in Barca’s 1-1 draw in the first leg at Stamford and now he will be available for selection.

The 33-year-old missed Saturday game against Malaga where his side registered a 2-0 with reports suggesting that his injury was not as bad as feared. Despite missing Monday’s evening training session, Iniesta was present on Tuesday morning’s preparations for the tie together with his teammates.
