Barcelona captain Carles Puyol has been selected in the squad to face Real Madrid in the Supercopa second leg on Thursday, despite having a fractured cheekbone.

The 34-year-old defender suffered the injury in the 2-1 win at Osasuna at the weekend, but he has been included in the squad to face the La Liga champions at Santiago Bernabeu.

The Spanish international will play with a protective mask on as Barca look to claim their first trophy of the season on their fierce rivals' home turf.

Tito Vilanova's men lead 3-2 from the first leg.
