Barcelona midfielder Xavi Hernandez should be fit for their crucial Champions League clash with AC Milan on Tuesday, the club confirmed on Sunday.

Xavi has missed Barca's last two games due to a hamstring injury but trained with those who didn't play in Saturday's 2-0 win over Deportivo la Coruna on Sunday morning without any problems.

"Xavi participated in a session with the group of players that were on the bench against Deportivo," said a statement from the club.

Barca have an uphill task if they are to make it to the quarter-finals of the Champions League for the fifth consecutive season after losing the first-leg in Italy 2-0.
