London: Barcelona midfielder Andres Iniesta will almost certainly miss Saturday`s Club World Cup final against Estudiantes after damaging a thigh muscle in Wednesday`s 3-1 defeat of Atlante.
The Spain international had to be replaced by Bojan Krkic in the 75th minute of the semi-final against the CONCACAF champions and preliminary tests showed he had injured his left thigh, Barca said on their website.
"A further scan will be made on Thursday morning to determine the extent of the injury," the club said.
