Andres Iniesta is a doubt for Barcelona’s return Champions League match with Chelsea after suffering a hamstring injury in Sunday’s La Liga match with Atletico Madrid.
The 33-year-old midfielder limped off after 36 minutes at the Nou Camp having suffered the problem around the 22-minute mark.
Barcelona confirmed the hamstring injury and said Iniesta will undergo tests to ascertain how long he will be sidelined.

However, he must surely be doubtful for the second leg of the last-16 tie against Chelsea at the Nou Camp on March 14, with the scores tied at 1-1 following the first match.
The tie is delicately-poised after Lionel Messi cancelled out Willian’s opener in the first leg at Stamford Bridge on February 20.
Iniesta is almost certain to miss Barcelona’s visit to Malaga on Saturday evening as well.
Messi curled home a sublime free-kick to hand Barcelona the lead in their top of the table clash with Atletico.
