Barcelona’s Lionel Messi celebrates scoring their first goal with Andres Iniesta at Stamford Bridge in London February 20, 2018. — Action Images handout via ReutersBARCELONA, March 12 — Barcelona captain Andres Iniesta, who has been sidelined with a hamstring injury, trained today ahead of Wednesday´s Champions League second leg against Chelsea.

Iniesta took part in some of the session with the rest of Barca first team, boosting hopes he could return for the last 16 match at the Camp Nou. The first leg finished 1-1.

“There was further good news as Andres Iniesta, who has been out with a hamstring injury sustained against Atletico Madrid, was able to join the rest of the group for part of today’s routine,” a Barcelona statement read.

Iniesta limped off against Atletico Madrid eight days ago and missed Saturday´s 2-0 win over Malaga.

Instead the midfielder completed a light session at Barcelona´s training ground and later posted a picture on Twitter with the caption “every day closer”.

Also absent from the victory on Saturday was Lionel Messi, who was attending the birth of his son Ciro, but the striker is expected back against Chelsea.
