Gerardo Martino will have to face tonight's game against Seville without captain Carles Puyol, who is suffering from lumbago.

Puyol's place in the 18-man squad,  which is already missing the suspended Jordi Alba and Mascherano as well as Neymar, Oier and Dos Santos through injury, will be taken by Ibrahim Afellay,
