Barcelona boss Ernesto Valverde to consider 'risking' Andres Iniesta

Barcelona boss Ernesto Valverde says that he is currently considering whether to "risk" Andres Iniesta against Chelsea in the Champions League.

Barcelona boss Ernesto Valverde has suggested that it will be a "risk" to use Andres Iniesta against Chelsea on Wednesday night.

At the start of March, Iniesta sustained a hamstring injury during the 1-0 victory over Atletico Madrid and it has resulted in the playmaker spending a period on the sidelines.

Iniesta returned to training on Monday, but Valverde has indicated that the club legend is not guaranteed to play any part of the second leg of the Champions League last-16 tie at Camp Nou.

At a press conference, the 54-year-old told reporters: "When a game like this, the player is always more willing to play. Is the risk too excessive or not? We will see."

The tie is currently locked at 1-1 after a draw in the first leg at Stamford Bridge last month.
