Carles Puyol Doubtful For Barcelona's Champions League Trip To Arsenal - Report

Puyol was absent from training with his knee injury meaning he will likely miss Barcelona's game against Arsenal....
Barcelona defender Carles Puyol's chances of returning to action in the next seven days are becoming more and more doubtful.

The Spanish centre-back has still not recovered from the knee injury he picked up in January, and was absent from training as his team-mates returned following the international fixtures.

According to Marca, the injury will definitely rule Puyol out of the weekend's La Liga game against Sporting Gijon and almost certainly mean he will miss the first leg against Arsenal.

Another absentee for Pep Guardiola is Jeffren, who is on the treatment table with a muscle tear.
