11 May 2010 - 17:33:34
Barcelona's attempt to retain their La Liga crown have been handed a boost after Andres Iniesta was able to return to training.
The 26-year-old has been sidelined for more than a month with a hamstring injury but is expected to start Barca's final game of the season against Valladolid on Sunday.
It is anticipated that Spain international Iniesta will replace Xavi Hernandez who is suspended for this weekend's match.
Barca have won 17 and drawn one of their 18 league games at the Camp Nou this term and lead second-placed Real Madrid by one point going into Sunday's final round of fixtures.
