Xavi passes late fitness test ahead of AC Milan game
Barcelona midfielder Xavi Hernandez has been declared fit to play against AC Milan in their crucial Champions League tie, the club said on Tuesday.
The 33-year-old took a full part in training with his team-mates on Tuesday 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 on Tuesday and will be available for the huge match against Milan," said a statement on the club's website.
Barca have an up-hill task if they are to progress to the quarter-finals 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.
