Barcelona captain Carles Puyol will rest for a week and undergo physiotherapy after receiving a knock to his right knee during Sunday´s 1-0 Primera Liga defeat at home to Real Madrid.
The 29-year-old was substituted with 14 minutes remaining following a collision with Raul, and was examined on Monday by Barca´s medical staff.
Puyol is hoping to be fit for Barca´s next match - the Copa del Rey encounter with Alcoyano on January 2.
