Iniesta, who has only recently returned from a hamstring tear, played a key role in the 2-0 victory at the Nou Camp, including scoring the opening goal in the 10th minute. David Villa scored Barca's second goal eight minutes from time.

Guardiola said of Iniesta: "Andres, when he's in good shape, is unique, a star player. He has this ability to break down defences which is so important for us."
