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?
