Barcelona stars should be fit for Champions League final

7:30 am on 27 May 2009

Barcelona and Manchester United should both be at full fitness for tomorrow morning's Champions League final in Rome.

Barcelona's coach Pep Guardiola is confident Thierry Henry and Andres Iniesta will have recovered from knee and thigh injuries by tomorrow, and United's defender Rio Ferdinand has declared himself fit to play following a calf muscle injury.

As the designated "away" team for the final, Manchester United have chosen to play in an all white strip, after Barcelona chose their traditional blue and red.
