Midfielder Andres Iniesta looks set to return to the pitch after a recent injury layoff, which would prove vital for Ernesto Valverde’s squad selection in the Round of 16.
Iniesta has been out of action for over a week after sustaining a hamstring injury on March 4 against Atletico. However, the veteran was in training on Monday, which suggests that the Spaniard will be a role against the Blues.
The two sides are currently level at 1-1 after the first leg at Stamford Bridge in February, but Barca’s vital away goal courtesy of Lionel Messi has Valverde’s men in a good position.
Barcelona does have options behind Iniesta in the pecking order, including Andre Gomes and Ousmane Dembele, depending on how the Spanish leaders line up.
