Barcelona midfielder Andres Iniesta has been ruled out of Wednesday's Champions League match with Arsenal due to a hamstring injury.

The Spain international was replaced just after half-time in Saturday night's Primera Division win over Real Mallorca and, after undergoing tests on Sunday, it was announced that he is likely to be sidelined for around 10 days.

That would mean Iniesta missing the Champions League quarter-final first leg with Arsenal and next weekend's league match with Athletic Bilbao.

Barca coach Pep Guardiola will be keeping his fingers crossed the Euro 2008 winner will be available for the return leg against Arsenal and the away match with Real Madrid.
