Iniesta suffers hamstring injury in Barcelona win

Andres Iniesta has been diagnosed with
a hamstring injury after being forced off in the second half of Barcelona’s 2-1 UEFA Champions League win over Bayer Leverkusen...

The Spain international signalled to the bench that he would be unable to continue after he went to ground on the 60-minute mark, with Jordi Alba his replacement.
Though able to walk unaided from the pitch, Iniesta was seen punching a dugout chair in frustration as he took his seat, and the club has since confirmed the problem.
“The player has an injury to the femoral biceps of his right leg,” a statement released by Barca read.
“His return to training will depend on his progress.” Late goals from Sergi Roberto and Luis Suarez saw Barca come from 1-0 down to secure its first win in Group E.
Recall that Barcelona are second in their league table with 15 points, one point adrift Villarreal having played six games.
Will they be able to maintain their winning streak when they visit Sevilla in their league game this Saturday with key players injured?
