Thierry Henry and Andres Iniesta are making good progress in recovering from injuries in time for the Champions League final, Barcelona said on their website on Monday.
The pair completed a full training session with the rest of the squad for the first time since they were sidelined, though they have yet to be officially passed fit.
"They are working well and I think they will be able to play," Barca midfielder Xavi told a news conference.
"We are a better team if they can."
Spain midfielder Iniesta tore a thigh muscle and France striker Henry suffered a knee injury.
The Spanish champions play holders Manchester United in the final in Rome on Wednesday.
