Alexis Sanchez and Andres Iniesta were sidelined by injuries sustained during the Copa Del Rey quarter final match against Real Madrid. The news comes after FC Barcelona made it to the semi finals after a tie against Real Madrid.

According to Goal, Alexis Sanchez sustained an injury to his shoulder during the second half of the match. Sanchez was examined by the La Blaugrana medical staff and is expected to be resting for two weeks.

Sanchez will not be participating in La Blaugrana's match against Villareal and Real Sociedad. He is expected to receive more evaluations from the Barca medical team.

Andres Iniesta sustained an injury to his left thigh (as reported by Goal), during the Copa del Rey quarter final match. The last time he was injured was in November 2011; Iniesta had to rest for two weeks.

Goal reported as a small "rupture in the biceps femoris muscle" occurred during the first half of the match between Barca and Real Madrid. It remains to be seen how FC Barcelona will fare without Sanchez and Iniesta.

My opinion is that La Blaugrana is able to defend itself against Villareal and Real Sociedad.
