Barcelona - Real Madrid Live

Luis Enrique should be able to send out his strongest XI to face Real Madrid on Saturday after Friday’s training session confirmed the readiness of Andrés Iniesta, Jordi Alba and Gerard Piqué.

Iniesta return

The Barça captain was on the receiving end of a crunching Enzo Pérez challenge during the 3-2 victory over Valencia and has missed the side’s last four Liga fixtures but the club’s medical staff have given Iniesta the all-clear to play.

Alba, Piqué on track to start

Alba, who was also a doubt for the Clásico after suffering a knee problem that kept him out of the side for the midweek Copa game against Hércules, has also been passed fit while Piqué should also be available to start after treatment on a sprained ankle.
