Barcelona have been handed a major boost ahead of their Champions League second-leg clash with Chelsea in the shape of the fitness of one of their most important players.
Barca were not exactly at the races during the first-leg. They’re lucky not to be heading back to the Nou Camp with a deficit to overturn, following what was an efficient and classy performance from the Premier League champions in West London.
We thought as though we may have been given a leg-up ahead of the second-leg, with Andres Iniesta sustaining an injury soon before the contest. However, Barcelona revealed on their Twitter account that he has in fact been included in their squad for the game.

The Chelsea faithful will still be having nightmares of Iniesta’s match-winning goal at the Bridge back in 2009. Let’s hope that the World Cup winner is not able to replicate such exploits this evening on his own turf.
