Andres Iniesta To Miss The Rest of The Season but Not World Cup

Barcelona and Spain midfielder Andres Iniesta has damaged a thigh muscle in training and will miss the holders’ Champions League semi-final against Internazionale and most of the rest of the domestic campaign.

Iniesta, who scored the goal at Chelsea that put Barca in last season’s Champions League final and is a key member of Vicente del Bosque’s Spain squad, will be out for about a month.

He is certain to miss the clash against Inter, with the first leg in Milan on April 20 and the return on April 28, but could be back for the trip to Sevilla on the weekend of May 8/9, Barca’s penultimate game of the Liga season.

The Champions League final is on May 22 in Madrid and the 2010 World Cup in South Africa starts in June.
