Barcelona midfielder Andres Iniesta looks set to miss the final of the FIFA Club World Cup after suffering a thigh injury in the win over Atlante yesterday.

Iniesta limped off the pitch in the second half of the 3-1 success, and initial tests have shown a muscle injury in his left thigh.

The 25-year-old will undergo a further scan today to discover the extent of the problem, but a statement on Barcelona's club website confirmed he is "virtually ruled out" of Saturday's final against Estudiantes.

The European champions will be aiming to lift their sixth title of 2009 against the Argentinian side.
