The midfielder injured his hamstring and will be rested for nearly two weeks. Nevertheless, Barca has depth in their squad and there are no other notable injuries.

Dutch winger Ibrahim Affelay but faces a challenge to make the starting line-up.

Barcelona are on top of the La Liga table with 59 points, nine more than second-placed Atletico Madrid and 16 more than arch-rivals Real Madrid.

However, the Catalans cannot afford to slip up and will look to continue their impressive home record, having gone 33 games unbeaten.

Getafe's Pedro Leon and Abdelaziz Barrada could return to the starting line-up while defender Mane will miss the match due to suspension.
