Iniesta sidelined for a fortnight

Barcelona midfielder Andres Iniesta is set to be sidelined for the next fortnight after suffering a leg injury while on international duty with Spain.

According to a Barça statement, Iniesta damaged the adductor muscle in his right leg during last night's FIFA World Cup™ qualifying win over Georgia and will be out for between "ten to 15 days".

Barça also announced that full-back Jordi Alba, another member of the Spain side that beat Georgia, has the flu and will undergo further tests on Friday.

Barça play Getafe in La Liga this weekend before then taking on Spartak Moscow in their opening UEFA Champions League group match next Wednesday. Tito Vilanova's men then face Granada in the league the following weekend.
