Iniesta suffered the injury in the holders’ Champions League Group H match at home to AC Milan on Tuesday, the Spanish club said.

Iniesta was replaced by Spain teammate Cesc Fabregas shortly before halftime at the Nou Camp, before Barca conceded a stoppage-time goal to draw 2-2 with the seven-times European champions.

“Tests have confirmed that the player suffered damage to the femoral biceps of the left leg,” the La Liga club said in a statement on their website.

“The approximate time he will be out of action is four weeks,” they added.

Sanchez suffered a thigh injury against Real Sociedad on Saturday and will be out for about two months.
