Madrid – Barcelona midfielder Xavi has been declared fit to play against AC Milan in their crucial Champions League tie, the club has said.

The 33-year-old took a full part in training with his team-mates today after missing Barca’s previous two games due to a hamstring problem.

“Xavi has received the all-clear from the medical staff after training at midday today and will be available for the huge match against Milan,” said a statement on the club’s website.

Barca have an uphill task if they are to progress to the quarterfinals though as the Italians take a 2-0 lead to the Nou Camp thanks to goals from Kevin-Prince Boateng and Sulley Muntari in the first leg three weeks ago.
