Barcelona’s Andres Iniesta to Miss First Real Madrid Semifinal With Injury

Barcelona’s Andres Iniesta will miss tonight’s first Champions League semifinal match at Real Madrid with a calf injury.

Iniesta felt a “twinge” in his right calf yesterday, Barcelona manager Pep Guardiola said on the club’s website. The midfielder trained for only 10 minutes before going to the dressing room for treatment.

Guardiola didn’t say whether the injury would keep Iniesta out of the return match in the two-game series in Barcelona on May 3.
