Iniesta out for Huelva


Medical tests carried out this afternoon have confirmed that Andres Iniesta has a slipped meniscus in his left knee. The player will miss Saturday’s game against Recreativo de Huelva.

Barça v Schalke was a tough game and the players are feeling the effects. No fewer than six first team players were missing from today’s session. Henry, Zambrotta, Xavi and Iniesta all have minor injuries, while Valdés and Abidal did specific work in the gym.

Iniesta to need further tests

Andrés Iniesta has a slipped meniscus in his left knee, which casts some doubt over his availability for future matches. Like all the other players with minor injuries, the midfielder started the game against Schalke 04.

Bruises for Henry, Zambrotta and Xavi

Henry has bruised his Achilles heel. Zambrotta also took to a knock, this time to his right calf, and was also missing at La Masia. Xavi has bruised his right foot, and was absent too. Víctor Valdés and Eric Abidal were also feeling the effects of the Champions League clash, and worked out in the gym.

And not only were some of the players suffering from the after-effects of the game with Schalke 04 (1-0), but Rijkaard then had a further problem to contend with, the reoccurrence of Marquez’s injury. The Mexican took two knocks to the same foot that he injured in Glasgow and his name was added to the worryingly long list of players with physical problems to contend with.
