Barcelona midfielder Andres Iniesta is poised to return from a four-match lay-off in this week's Champions League encounter with Benfica.

Iniesta has been named in the travelling party for Tuesday's Group G match in Lisbon after recovering from a muscle injury suffered on international duty with Spain.

There were also places for Carles Puyol and Adriano in the 21-man squad after recovering from knee and muscular injuries respectively.

Thiago Alcantara was the most notable absentee from Tito Vilanova's squad with the midfielder awaiting the results of scans on a knee ligament injury he picked up in last night's 3-2 win at Sevilla.
