Barcelona captain Andres Iniesta is available to play against Real Madrid in the first Clasico of the season on Saturday at Camp Nou, head coach Luis Enrique has confirmed.

The 32-year-old midfielder damaged knee ligaments last month and has missed Barca's last six matches, but he returned to training on Friday.

Enrique told a news conference on Tuesday: "Andres is waiting to be given the all clear by the doctors but this is just a formality. He is fit and he has been training with us. He is available for selection."

Iniesta will nevertheless not travel to Alicante for his side's Copa del Rey round-of-32 first-leg match against Hercules on Wednesday, as he is suspended.
