Barcelona ace Puyol out for ten days

Puyol was replaced by Martin Caceres in the game.

“He has a small muscle tear to the back of his left thigh,” Barcelona doctor, Richard Pruna, explained. “It is not that bad, but we are still going to be careful.

“At this stage of the season, any injury could be serious due to the amount of games and we do not want him to be out for longer than necessary.”

“I think he will be out of the next two matches and we will see how the recuperation is going before deciding if he can play against Sporting de Gijon,” Pruna added.
