Medical: Marquez out for eight to ten weeks

Barcelona's medical staff has announced that Barcelona player Rafael Márquez (30) has torn the internal and external menisci of his left knee during yesterday's Champions League game against Chelsea.

Márquez, who was replaced by Puyol five minutes into the second half, is expected to be out for eight to ten weeks, which mean the end of his season. The player will undergo surgery on Saturday.

you forgot about sylvinho...
but maybe yaya can play as CB.I don't know if he did it yet. And Keita as DM. But I son't think that this will happen.
Don't wanna see Caceres against chelsea. But maybe he'll get the chance and shows us that he's worth the money we payed for him.

I can't imagine how we could play in the 2nd leg of the semi finals.

Maybe we'll play like that:

Alves Pique Abidal/Caceres Sylvinho/Abidal

sorry sknjos... fought you talk about defenders not about cb...

so we only have left pique, caceres as real cb for the half final.

zos said...

dont worry much guys... pique elimin ated drogba and caceres is really fast so he can cope well with malouda or essien... the only really dangerous thing will be set pieces... Moreover, chelsea fans are celebrating the fact that Caceres will play in the second leg wouldnt it be funny if he scored the winning goal:P??

It will be Caceres or Abidal in central defence. Id go with Caceres because he is a good player, who needs chances.

Oh boy, this is starting to look the Champions League Semi-Finals of last season.

Against a British team.

First leg is at Camp Nou and it ends 0-0.

And now one of our important CB's has a serious injury just like Milito!`

Milito only got injured in the return game (second half I think).

the thing with caceres is he will either win or lose you the game dpending on what mood he is in. When he is on form there is no centerback in the world like him he is amazing but off form he is very dangerous to our team very dangerous. Will we risk it!!! i hope so

2-3 months. shit. wish him the best recovery.

abi never played as central defender. it will be cacares filling the gap. such a f u ck that puyol got booked yesterday.

Etsp said...

Anon: Abidal have actually played as a central defender, but never from the start.

JJ said...

Very sad, I hope Rafa gets well soon and has a speedy recovery. Things are getting tough now.

deco said...

oh no Marquez :(
So Abidal or Caceres will play against Chelsea
Abidal is the cb of the french national team so, thats no problem.
But I have faith in Caceres. Caceres has even more fysical abilities than puyol has.He's fast,big and strong with some good defending movements. The only thing he need is faith in himself.

Since Marquez is out, my guess is that Barca will start in London with two defensive midfielders: Toure + Busquets/Keita which means Iniesta will be playing on the left instead of Titi.

I have always like the speed and size of Caceres. He has made some pretty remarkable saves, along with a few passing blunders. Its to bad Pep didn't play or start him more often in big games. If Martin starts and plays shakey or makes some key mistakes Pep can only blame himself!
