Madrid - Andres Iniesta looks set to win his fitness battle for Barcelona's Champions League final against Juventus after taking part in a full training session on Thursday.

Having injured his right calf at the weekend, Barca's midfield pass master risked being the club's only major absentee for the Berlin final on Saturday.

"The whole team took part in training Thursday including Andres Iniesta, who had been training alone these last two days," Barcelona said on their website.

Iniesta was replaced by Xavi Hernandez early in the second-half as Barca won the Spanish Cup with a 3-1 victory over Athletic Bilbao last weekend.

Barcelona and Juventus are hoping to complete trebles on Saturday as both clubs have won their domestic league and cup competitions.

Iniesta, who could win his 24th senior trophy for the Catalans on Saturday, plays a crucial role in Barcelona's 4-3-3 formation alongside Ivan Rakitic and Sergio Busquets.
