BARCELONA, Spain (AP) - Barcelona coach Luis Enrique has named a 26-man squad to travel to Berlin for Saturday’s Champions League final.

The Spanish champions appear to have a fully fit group, with Andres Iniesta traveling despite tweaking a right-leg muscle during last Saturday’s 3-1 win over Athletic Bilbao in the Copa del Rey final.

Iniesta said Tuesday that the possibility of not being ready to play Juventus for the European Cup “doesn’t cross my mind.”

Luis Enrique is expected to stick with his first-choice 11 of Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar in attack, supported by Iniesta, Ivan Rakitic and Sergio Busquets in midfield.

The defense is likely to be Jordi Alba, Javier Mascherano, Gerard Pique and Dani Alves, with Marc-Andre ter Stegen in goal.
