Iniesta injured his right thigh in Barcelona’s 9-0 rout of Hospitalet last month and missed Thursday’s 4-0 victory over Osasuna. The Spain international recovered during the Spanish winter break and returns without having missed any league games.

Three-time defending Spanish champion Barcelona currently trails Real Madrid by three points in the standings.
