Barcelona can not use the services of the captain, Carles Puyol, again due to muscle injury. As a result, coach Pep Guardiola had to think hard to find a replacement Puyol for the Copa del Rey match against Osasuna, 4 January.
Puyol get this muscle injury when the defending Catalunya team last week's friendly against Tunisia. Puyol reportedly did not participate in training on Saturday. Barcelona hoping the player can take part in training the next few days.
To replace the role of Puyol, Guardiola likely to play Javier Mascherano or Sergio Busquets in several previous games have been placed in position Puyol. There is also the possibility of Guardiola will provide the opportunity for young players to return show the ability.
In addition to Puyol, Barcelona is also likely to lose Seydou Keita, Eric Abidal, and Alexiz Sanchez in this match.
