Carles Puyol suffers a bad injury to his shoulder during Barcelona's Champions League fixture with Benfica.

Barcelona captain Carles Puyol has suffered a suspected dislocated shoulder after landing awkwardly during the Champions League encounter against Benfica.

Not only will the 34-year-old now miss this Sunday's El Clasico, but he also looks likely to endure a lengthy spell on the sidelines.

Puyol went up for a 78th-minute corner and was challenged by Benfica goalkeeper Artur.

When landing, his arm visibly gave way from underneath him and he immediately signalled to the Barcelona bench.

The centre-back has only just recovered from a knee ligament injury.
