Breaking news- Andres Iniesta returns for Real Madrid clash
Barcelona coach Luis Enrique has revealed to reporters that the club's captain Andres Iniesta will be contention to play Real Madrid on December 3rd.
Iniesta's creativity, flair and clairvoyance have largely been missed by Barcelona who currently struggling to exact their authority in the league while trailing Real Madrid by six points.
The 32-year-old suffered ligament damage during the dramatic 3-2 La Liga win at Valencia on October 22, leaving the field in tears following a strong challenge from Enzo Perez.
Talking to reporters, Luis Enrique said: "Andres is waiting for medical clearance but it's more of a formality really.
"He is training with us and looks in great condition. He won't be playing Wednesday because he is suspended, but we are just waiting on confirmation [for El Clasico]. But in theory he is selectable."
With Andres Iniesta set to return for Barcelona, Real Madrid might finally be beaten this season.
