Barcelona defender Carles Puyol will miss next week’s Champions League tie with Arsenal with a knee injury.

The injury has sidelined the Spaniard since the win over Racing Santander on 22nd January.

He is back in training but Barcelona manager Pep Guardiola admits his captain is unlikely to make the trip to the Emirates next Wednesday.

“That’s the feeling I have. But things could change and he could also go,” said Guardiola.

“It’s going well but when we ask for a little more, it becomes a problem.”

If Puyol fails in his attempt to be fit, Eric Abidal will likely partner Gerard Pique at the heart of defence with Maxwell moving to left-back.
