Barcelona’s midfield playmaker, Xavi Hernandez is confident of shaking off his calf injury before their Champions League return-leg clash with Arsenal.
The World Cup winning midfielder is optimistic that he will be able to make the Valencia clash, a week before Barca tackle Arsenal again in the Champions League.
“We’ll see how it develops but in principle I could be fit for the Valencia game,” said the 31-year-old.
“These are feelings you have yourself.
“Last year I played with a similar injury but each person has their own sensations, if they feel mentally prepared.”
