Barcelona added that Lionel Messi and Andres Iniesta have trained away from the first team, with the pair nursing leg injuries.

Messi hurt a right leg muscle during Sunday’s 1-0 win at Villarreal while Iniesta missed the win citing pain in his left knee.

Neither star will play with their respective national teams this week.

The club adds that back-up goalie Jordi Masip has fractured a finger and will be sidelined for four weeks.
