Madrid: Barcelona defender Carles Puyol is set to miss Wednesday`s Champions League second leg clash with German Bundesliga side Bayer Leverkusen because of a groin injury.
Puyol joins teammates Frenchman Eric Abidal, Chilean wing Alexis Sanchez and long-term injury victims David Villa and Dutch international Ibrahim Afellay on the sidelines.
Barcelona hold a 3-1 first-leg lead over their German opponents.
I retired three years ago but I am still training with Arsenal because I have a good relation with the club and Arsene Wenger. So it's been easy to come out of retirement.
