After an examination on Sunday it has been discerned that the Mexican does not have Influenza A, and depending on his progress, he may be able to play on Tuesday.
Abidal and Touré do indeed have Influenza, but the suggestion that Rafa Márquez has also caught the illness has been cast aside as a false alarm. The FC Barcelona Medical Services will be studying the player’s progress, and he may he fine to play against Inter. It will be a busy time for them, for they are also closely monitoring the progress of Leo Messi and Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
Important for defence
If Rafa Márquez is indeed able to play on Tuesday, that will be comforting news for Josep Guardiola, as he already has three players, Abidal and Touré (flu) and Chygrynskiy (cup tied) that he cannot pick.
