Iniesta sidelined with injury

Iniesta sidelined with injury

Andres Iniesta picked up a muscle strain in his right leg during the 2014 FIFA World Cup qualifier against Saudi Arabia in Georgia.

Barca’s key midfielder will sit out about two weeks of action missing Saturday’s Liga match at Getafe and the UEFA Champions League Group G opening match against Russian giants Spartak Moskva on home soil on 19 September 2012.

Meanwhile, another club starlet Jordi Alba is chained by the flu and will be back to the team only on Friday.

Frazzled with its best players’ injuries, Barcelona had a sigh of relief after Spain’s top marksman David Villa is finally back to full fitness after sustaining a leg fracture in December 2011. Though, he is not intended to gruel himself by extensive training and will return to game gradually.
