The Medical Services have reported that Jérémy Mathieu is having problems with the Achilles tendon in his left leg and will therefore not be travelling to La Coruña on Sunday. Further tests will shed more light on how long the French defender is likely to be out of action.

Xavi Hernández has not been given the medical all-clear, but was able to train normally with the rest of the squad on Saturday morning at the Ciutat Esportiva.

Barça will be heading to Galicia on Sunday morning, shortly after the official squad is due to be announced. The game at Riazor kicks off at 7.00pm (CET).
