Official: Iniesta to miss Sporting

Barcelona have confirmed that midfielder Andres Iniesta will miss their next game against Sporting CP on Tuesday with a calf strain.

Iniesta was replaced early in the second half of Barca’s 0-0 draw with Athletic Bilbao on Saturday with the problem, although Mundo Deportivo stresses the 33-year-old did not suffer an injury.

Consequently, he should be back for the trip to Villarreal next weekend, while the Catalans have already qualified for the Champions League last 16.
