Despite missing training during the week with a calf problem the outgoing midfielder will be in the matchday squad against Real Madrid

Andres Iniesta has been passed fit for Barcelona's squad to face Real Madrid in what will be his final Clasico.

Iniesta missed training during the week due to a reported calf issue and was a doubt for Sunday's La Liga game at Camp Nou.

But the club captain, set to leave Barca at the end of the season, is included in an 18-man squad named by Ernesto Valverde on Saturday.

Barcelona are at full strength for the clash against their arch-rivals, having wrapped up the Liga title last week with victory over Deportivo.

There is no room in the matchday squad for the likes of Yerry Mina, Aleix Vidal and Andre Gomes, who are all left out by Valverde for Sunday's match.

Iniesta is expected to complete a move to Chinese Super League side Chongqing Lifan, but the Spain midfielder is yet to confirm his future plans.

The 33-year-old has won nine La Liga titles during his career-long association with Barca, also claiming six Copa del Rey crowns and four Champions Leagues.
