For two teams known for their pretty football as much as AC Milan and Barcelona, this UEFA Champions League matchup sure has been a physical one. Kevin Prince-Boateng has already had to come off with an injury for the Rossoneri, and now Barcelona are having to replace a midfielder of their own. Andres Iniesta has come off with an injury in the 39th minute, replaced by Cesc Fabregas.
As far as replacements go, Fabregas is about as good as Barcelona could possibly hope for. He's not exactly the same player as Iniesta, but he's a brilliant, creative central midfield player who knows how to play Iniesta's role, so there shouldn't be much of a drop off in quality for the Blaugranas.
It's not entirely clear what the injury is, but Iniesta sustained it in a collision with Ignazio Abate.
