La Liga Preview: Barcelona - Zaragoza

Carles Puyol looks set for a spell on the sidelines after fracturing his right cheekbone during Barcelona's 1-2 win over Osasuna.

Hospital tests confirmed the injury, meaning the veteran central defender is likely to miss the Supercopa second-leg tie against Real Madrid.

Puyol will undergo further tests on Monday to determine the full extent of the injury and his estimated length of absence.
