Barcelona's Valdes, Abidal out of Atletico match

Share This Story



Barcelona says it will be without goalkeeper Victor Valdes and defender Eric Abidal for Sunday's match at Atletico Madrid.

The Spanish club says that Valdes has not recovered from a left-foot injury that kept him out of last weekend's game also.

Abidal will be sidelined after hurting a muscle in his left leg during Friday's training session. Abidal recently returned from a liver transplant.

Barcelona can clinch the Spanish league title if Real Madrid drops points at Espanyol on Saturday or with a win at Atletico the following day.
