Barca Injury List Increases - Xavi, Keita and Busquets ruled out for next match

FC Barcelona's current injury crisis has shifted from the defense to Midfield. Keita has been already ruled out for three to four weeks, now it has been confirmed that FC Barcelona will be without the service of Xavi Hernandez for two weeks. Xavi has picked up a knock in the Sunday's game. Tests conducted on Monday have revealed that the player has torn semitendinosus muscle fibres in his right thigh. He will be out for about 15 days.If you can't take that, then consider this - Busquets is suspended for the Racing match. Now on Sunday we had only three regular defenders available, now it looks like we have only one midfielder available for next match. Guardiola's problem in defense is set to be solved as Pique and Marquez will be back from suspension. Dani Alves, Toure and Abidal are already out with injury.

FC Barcelona's Injury List Complicates Champions League Campaign

FC Barcelona's next match is against Racing at home and after that they will travel to Germany to face Stuttgart in Champions League. Toure is expected to return to action for the match against Stuttgart. But it is not yet sure how we will be solving the midfield puzzle in the next match. The defense most probably could be lined-up with Puyol, Pique, Milito and Maxwell. Marquez could be shifted to midfield to play the defensive midfielder role. Iniesta will be a sure pick in the Barca midfield but who will partner him is the question. Jonathan Dos Santos could be the ideal choice. I know people might complain about our lack of bench strength, but can we really plan for this many injuries?

Thax Bibin for all this , i know it's too much to be held but but but i want to comment in your last sentence : if we can't plan for all these injuries so we can plan for some of them if we had had some signs & stronger bench, No ??

Another solution is to shift Messi to Midfield along with Iniesta & Marquez

Front Line Pedro , Henry & Ibra ...

I know you are extremely upset with Pep for not buying anyone in the transfer window. But the problem with pep is that, anyone whom he buys will never any good playing time.

Moving Messi to midfield might enhance midfield but what about front line. With Ibra and Hnery not firing we cannot afford to miss Messi upfront.

Bibin ..

We can buy players not stars , player whom willing to sit on bench for a time as Modrich from totenham or David swazo for the front line from Ganawa or we can improve our academy players as Dos santos .. even when we were winning by 4 -5 or six goals Pep didnt use them!

Next game supposed to be an easy game even with out our main players if we changed tactics little bit by let Ibra & Henrty "Pedro" in the front line Messi down both of them Dos santos Iniesta & Marquez for the real midfield players as messi can handle ball & give some good passes ...
