Andres Iniesta will miss Spain’s European championship qualifier against Belarus.

The national team says Iniesta has been dropped from the squad because of “muscle pain he has felt for the last few days.”

Spain plays at Belarus next Sunday, three days after hosting Costa Rica in a friendly.

On Saturday, Iniesta started and set up Ivan Rakitic’s opening goal in Barcelona’s 3-1 win over Juventus in the Champions league final.

Iniesta had tweaked a right leg muscle in the Copa del Rey final on May 30, when Barcelona beat Athletic Bilbao 3-1.

Spain, the two-time defending European champion, is in second place in Group C, three points behind leader Slovakia.
