As we get closer to the next Barcelona match, there's a bit of a concern about an important player missing the game. Andrés Iniesta, man of the match last Wednesday in the Copa semifinal win against Villarreal, is likely to sit out of the encounter with Levante, this Sunday at Camp Nou.
The second captain has been battling the flu all week. Although it didn't hold him back from the clash with the Yellow Submarine, the issue got a little worse after the game and continued into the weekend. To avoid anything serious, Iniesta is possibly going to watch the Levante match from the stands.
Another injured player that didn't practice with the squad on Saturday is Douglas Pereira, who's still sidelined with issues of his own.
Other than Andrés and Douglas (oh, and Thomas Vermaelen, also), there is no injury issues for the Blaugrana, and Luis Enrique will have a deep squad to work with for Sunday's game.
