Barcelona were handed a blow in their 1-0 win over Atletico Madrid as star midfielder Andreas Iniesta suffered a hamstring injury in the game.

The 33-year-old was forced off in the first half of Barcelona’s clash with Atletico Madrid at Camp Nou on Sunday.

Barca have confirmed that Iniesta will now undergo tests to determine the full extent of the injury.

Chelsea travel to Camp Nou on March 14 having played a 1-1 draw with Barcelona at Stamford Bridge last month.

You’d recall that it was Iniesta who provided the assist for Lionel Messi’s equaliser in the first leg against Chelsea after Willian had put Antonio Conte’s side in front.
