Iniesta injury confirmed

La Liga

Barcelona have confirmed Andres Iniesta will not play against Sporting Lisbon in the Champions League on Tuesday due to a calf injury.

The 33-year-old came off early in the second half for Denis Suarez in Saturday’s 2-2 draw with Celta Vigo in La Liga and now Barca have issued a short statement to say he will not face the Portuguese giants this week.

The Catalans have already qualified as winners of Group D, but Sporting could yet secure second place with a win at the Nou Camp, while hoping Juventus fail to beat Olympiacos.
