Title-chasing Barcelona are set to be without defender Rafael Marquez for at least another two weeks through injury.

Marquez, whose last playing appearance for Barca came over a month ago, has been struggling with a right thigh injury and he felt more pain in the damaged area during individual training earlier this week.

The Mexico international underwent tests on Tuesday, with Barca´s medical staff subsequently confirming that Marquez has suffered "a new tear of two millimetres around the initial scar" and is likely to be out for around 15 days.
