Barça blighted by injuries
23 October 2016 @ 19:06

Barça captain Andrés Iniesta will be out of action for between six and eight weeks after injuring knee ligaments in his side's dramatic win over Valencia on Saturday.

The midfielder was injured by an Enzo Pérez tackle after 14 minutes of the 3-2 win and left on a stretcher.

He could miss the rest of the Champions League group games and is definitely out of the match at Manchester City on November 1st.

Barcelona snagged victory at the Mestalla thanks to a late Lionel Messi penalty, his second goal of the game.

Luis Enrique' side, who went top of La Liga with the win, will go to Manchester City without Iniesta's fellow Spain internationals Gerard Piqué and Jordi Alba, who are also out through injury. Both  players went off during Wednesday night's 4-0 win over City at the Nou Camp.
