Carles Puyol suffered a second grade sprained left ankle at the end of tonight’s game that could see him out of action for up to three weeks.

All the positive points of tonight’s game together with Madrid’s draw at the Bernabeu were at least partially dashed by captain Carlos Puyol’s late injury that could see him out for up to three weeks.
