Andres Iniesta returned to training with Barcelona on Thursday after missing time with a calf injury.
Defeating Italian champions Juventus will be no easy task, though.
“What Messi does is scandalous,” Xavi said.
Luis Enrique will take a full squad to Berlin, with reserve players Munir, Sandro and Samper also travelling to the German capital.
Two of those titles have come this season, with the Blaugrana having already clinched the league title and a record 27th Copa del Rey in Luis Enrique’s first year in charge.
“Juventus are a great team, with talent and physique,” Xavi said. The goal against Athletic in last weekend’s final was one of his best. “
Should Barcelona emerge victorious from the Olympiastadion, Xavi will leave with 25 trophies in his famous career with the Catalan club..
Barcelona look set to have Andres Iniesta available for Saturday’s Champions League final against Juventus with the midfielder having returned to training after a calf injury.
Club captain Xavi is leaving Barca after 24 years this summer to join Qatari side Al Sadd, and the 35-year-old playmaker is hoping to go out a winner.
Iniesta, 31, missed his side’s workouts earlier this week after being injured during last weekend’s Copa del Rey final triumph over Athletic Bilbao but rejoined the squad in training on Thursday.
That means Iniesta could yet line up alongside his long-time midfield colleague Xaxi for the final time in Saturday’s final, which will be the last match in Barca colours for the latter.
Barca will again be looking to star man Lionel Messi to try and break down the Juventus defence and possibly add to his remarkable total of 55 goals in all competitions this term.
Barca are the only Spanish club to have won a Primera Division, Champions League and Copa del Rey Treble, something they did under Pep Guardiola in the 2008-09 campaign. “He is the best in the world and of the history of the sport. What he does is unique. “Saturday’s final will be my last for Barca and I hope to lift the trophy in Berlin.”
Barcelona players Xavi Hernandez, Andres Iniesta and Gerard Pique all praise Lionel Messi for his individual skill and his unparalleled football ability. “We go into the final full of confidence and charged up,” Xavi said to the Spanish press.
Xavi has been alongside Messi for most of Barca’s triumphs in the last decade and the former Spain ace does not believe there has been anyone better to have played the game.

Juve have already eliminated Barcelona’s arch-rivals and reigning European champions Real Madrid in the semifinals, and are also on for a trophy Treble this season.
“We already have a historic double and we want more,” Xavi said
