Xavi out for 15 days


Barça have yet another player out through injury, and it’s Xavi Hernández. Tests made on Monday have revealed that the player has torn semitendinosus muscle fibres in his right thigh. He will be out for about 15 days.

With Keita and Touré injured and Sergio Busquets suspended, Barça’s woes have now been transferred from defence to midfield. Of the regular starters, only Iniesta is certain to be available for the game with Racing Santander.

Alves is well on the road to revovery, and the other injuries are progressing well too. The Brazilian was able to appear at the Ciutat Esportiva for training this morning.
