Barcelona captain Andres Iniesta was forced off with injury during Barcelona’s La Liga clash against Atletico Madrid on Sunday at Camp Nou.

The midfielder started the game in midfield, along with Ivan Rakitic, Sergio Busquets and Philippe Coutinho.

However, he took a couple of heavy knocks in the opening stages. Iniesta soldiered on until the 35th minute when he finally succumbed and was replaced by Andre Gomes.

Barcelona later confirmed it is a hamstring problem and he will undergo tests to determine the severity.

Get well soon Andres!
