BARCELONA, Spain (AP) -- Barcelona forward Pedro Rodriguez will be sidelined for 10 days and miss the first leg of the Champions League quarterfinals after injuring his leg while playing for Spain in a World Cup qualifier.

The Catalan club said Wednesday that "tests have confirmed that the player has small muscle fiber tears'' in his left leg.

Pedro scored in the 58th minute of the 1-0 win at France on Tuesday, giving Spain first place of Group I in European qualifying for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

Apart from the Champions League match at Paris Saint-Germain next Tuesday, Pedro will miss Barcelona's Spanish league match at Celta Vigo on Saturday.
