Barcelona's Iniesta to miss Arsenal match

BY foxsports • March 28, 2010

Barcelona will be without midfielder Andres Iniesta for its Champions League quarterfinal match against Arsenal after the Spain international was diagnosed with a leg injury.

Medical scans Sunday confirmed Iniesta sustained a muscle injury in his right leg during Saturday's 1-0 Spanish league win at Mallorca.

Iniesta, who came off after 51 minutes, will miss Wednesday's first leg in north London and is doubtful for the return match at the Camp Nou on April 6 as he is expected to be out 10 days.

Iniesta has featured in all of Barcelona's European matches this season and 27 league games. The diminutive midfielder's late equalizer at Chelsea last year put Barcelona into the final, which it won against Manchester United.
