Club medical services have announced that Xavi Hernández is suffering from a strained hamstring in his right leg.

On Thursday, he received treatment from the Club physios and according a press release, “His availability for the next match will depend on his evolution”.

Xavi Hernández had a similar injury in the same leg in February and missed a number of league matches plus an international friendly in Doha as a result.

Team manager Tito Vilanova now finds himself without Xavi, Carles Puyol, Adriano, Jordi Alba and Pedro (injured) as well as Víctor Valdés (suspension) for Saturday’s game against Celta Vigo.
