Puyol, Adriano, and Iniesta cleared to play

There was triple good news for FC Barcelona today. Carles Puyol, Adriano Correia, and Andrés Iniesta received their medical clearances this Sunday and will be among the 21 players called up by Tito Vilanova for the Champions League match against Benfica on Tuesday. Also included in the squad list are Oier, Sergi Roberto, and Tello, from Barça B.

Puyol, Adriano, and Iniesta worked with the rest of their team-mates during the training session held on Sunday at the Ciutat Esportiva. Patric, from Barça B, also took part. Thiago, who won’t make the trip to Portugal, did not train after picking up an injury to his left knee during Saturday’s game. He is awaiting further tests on the injury.

The team worked today with the official Champions League ball.
