Andres Iniesta set for tests after injuring calf in Barcelona's win

Andres Iniesta, right, could not finish Barcelona's victory over Real Sociedad.

Andres Iniesta will have tests on a calf problem on Friday after being forced off during Barcelona's 1-0 Copa del Rey win over Real Sociedad.

Neymar scored the only goal of the game from the penalty spot as Barca ended a 10-year wait for a win at Anoeta, but the victory was tainted by Iniesta's injury.

The midfielder was replaced by Andre Gomes at half-time after complaining of a light pain and the Blaugrana will hope that the knock is nothing serious.

A statement from the club after the game confirmed: "Iniesta was substituted due to a problem with his left calf. [On Friday], he will have more tests back in Barcelona."

Iniesta missed six weeks with a knee injury earlier in the season, returning as a second-half substitute in December's draw with Real Madrid.

Barca underwent a slump in results without him -- drawing four out of five games at one point -- and his return to action prompted a five-game winning run.

Rafinha is currently the only Barca player missing through injury. A hamstring problem kept him out of Thursday's game in San Sebastian, but he's not expected to be sidelined for too long.

The win against Real Sociedad gives Barca a one-goal advantage going into next week's quarterfinal second leg at Camp Nou.
