Madrid, March 8 (DPA) Barcelona captain Carles Puyol will be out of action for around three weeks, according to the digital version of Sport and other Catalan media.
Puyol, 30, twisted the external lateral ligament in his right ankle in Saturday’s 2-0 home win over Athletic Bilbao, a result which leaves Barca six points clear at the top of La Liga.

The veteran defender will miss Tuesday’s Champions League round of 16 showdown at home to Olympique Lyon, as well as Barca’s upcoming league games against Almeria and Malaga.
