French defender returns to the squad after recovering from surgery to remove a tumour and so does the Spanish attacking midfielder, who missed last week’s fixture
Iniesta has recovered from a calf strain that kept him out of their semi-final, first-leg tie at the Santiago Bernabeu last week. The Spain international also missed Barca’s weekend clash with Real Sociedad that they lost 2-1.
Left-back Abidal too returns for the Spanish champions. The Frenchman has not played since mid-March after the discovery of a tumour on his liver. Abidal subsequently underwent surgery to have it removed, and has now recovered.
Barcelona won the first-leg 2-0 last week, thanks to a second-half brace from star striker Lionel Messi.
The squad list in full:
Goalkeeper: Valdes, Oier
Defenders: Abidal, Puyol, Alves, Pique, Bartra, Fontas.
Midfielders: Mascherano, Busquets, Sergi Roberto, Thiago, Iniesta, Xavi, Keita, Afellay.
Forwards: Messi, Villa, Pedro, Jeffren.
