Star midfielders Andres Iniesta and Arda Turan have missed FC Barcelona’s training sessions ahead of their second-leg match of the quarter-finals of the Copa del Rey football tournament against Athletic Bilbao due to illness.

Turan and Sergio Busquets were absent from Monday’s training because of a fever, while Iniesta, along with Turan, did not attend Tuesday’s workout as he was also sick, reports EFE.

Busquets attended Tuesday’s session, along with Barcelona’s Brazilian star Neymar da Silva who trained normally with his teammates.

Barca coach Luis Enrique may not include Busquets, Iniesta and Turan in the line-up for Wednesday’s match against Bilbao. Jordi Alba, who is still recovering from a muscle injury to his right leg, may also miss the game.

Barcelona won the first leg of the Copa del Rey quarter-finals against Athletic Bilbao 2-1.
