Barcelona - The back injury suffered by Barcelona midfielder Andres Iniesta in his side's 3-1 win over Paris Saint-Germain on Wednesday has been diagnosed as just heavy bruising, the club confirmed on Thursday.
"The tests carried out on Andres Iniesta confirmed heavy bruising on the sacroiliac joint," Barcelona said in a statement.
"The player will undergo specific recovery work."
Iniesta was stretchered off early in the second half of the Champions League quarter-final first leg and replaced by Xavi Hernandez after appearing to be struck hard in the lower back by the knee of PSG's Javier Pastore just outside his own penalty area.
Barcelona did not confirm how long the injury will keep the Spanish international out of action, but he is doubtful for Valencia's trip to the Camp Nou on Saturday.
