Barcelona are confident Xavi Hernández will be available for their UEFA
Champions League round of 16 decider against Arsenal FC although the
midfielder is nursing a calf injury.
The 31-year-old has been
ruled out for ten days with a minor muscle tear in his left calf, which
he had initially dismissed as a bout of cramp. The Spanish club’s
medical staff nonetheless expect him to be involved as Josep
Guardiola’s side bid to overturn a 2-1 first-leg deficit against
Arsenal at Camp Nou on 8 March.
Meanwhile, Barcelona goalkeeper
Víctor Valdés and defender Carles Puyol continue to receive specialist
attention as they look to shake off left knee complaints.
