The 33-year-old midfielder then underwent a medical examination and it was determined that he has muscle fatigue in his left calf and was declared unable to play when Barca faces Sporting on Wednesday (12/6) early morning Western Indonesia Time (WIB).

Club captain Iniesta has been diagnosed with muscle fatigue in his left calf and will sit out the meeting with the Portuguese side on Tuesday.

The winger is continuing to kick on with his development and, according to Catalan daily Sport, Barcelona have received good reports on him.

Meanwhile, Sporting could win the runner-up position if they won over Barca and if at the same time Juventus failed to win over Olympiakos.

Martins is blessed with blistering pace, but he doesn't just rely on that to show his opponents a clean pair of heels.

Martins is an excellent prospect, but he'll need to keep shining both domestically and in Europe if he's to justify that kind of price tag.
