Andres Iniesta a doubt for Barcelona trip to face Villarreal

Andres Iniesta is a doubt for Barcelona's game against Villarreal on Sunday.

The Blaugrana captain suffered some muscle problems after the game against Arsenal in the week and has been left out of Vicente del Bosque's squad as a result, for the friendlies against Italy and Romania on March 24th and 27th. 

The midfielder was taken off against Arsenal at Camp Nou, which seemed like a tactical switch, but now looks to be the result of what Iniesta was feeling.

"I spoke with Iniesta, he had a muscle pain the other day and for this he's not coming with the national team," explained Del Bosque. 

This could end up being what stops him playing against Villarreal. Luis Enrique does not want to take any risks with a tricky calendar ahead.
