FC Barcelona defender Eric Abidal will miss the side’s next two matches due to a meniscal cyst in his right knee.
The Frenchman noted the issue in training and tests pointed out that a cyst had formed. If conventional treatment hasn’t improved the situation by next week, other measures could be required.
In that case, the player might undergo an artriscopia, a visual examination of the joint.
As a result, Abidal misses Saturday’s Liga clash with Malaga and Tuesday’s Champions League game with Basel.
