Barcelona’s midfield talisman Andres Iniesta has picked up another injury to his left leg in the recent El Classico encounter in the Copa Del Rey.
Iniesta, who has injured his left leg twice prior to this latest blow, lasted only 30 minutes before being substituted against Real Madrid.
The injury was picked up in a relatively tame clash with Alvaro Arbeloa and along with three prior injuries this season, two of which were also to his left thigh will raise doubts over the Spaniard’s long term fitness.
The previous injuries have been relatively short absences for Iniesta, missing two weeks in November with a similar injury. He was sent for further tests to his injured leg and the results have not yet been made public. But the suggestions are that he could have torn his hamstring which would make for a few weeks absence in his recovery.
