Puyol could be sidelined for up to six weeks after suffering a knee injury in Saturday night's Primera Division win over Getafe.
Barca coach Tito Vilanova said after the 4-1 win: "It's always a problem when you lose players like him. We know how important Puyol is to the team. He played well throughout the match, he brings a lot to the team. Hopefully we can get him back soon."
