John Terry could miss the qualifying against Barça

Chelsea captain broke two ribs in the match against Benfica and is awaiting medical tests to determine whether to play against Barça.

Danger John Terry for the semifinals. Chelsea captain has many numbers to miss the playoff semifinals of the Champions League (18 in London and April 24 at the Camp Nou) against Barça after meeting with two broken ribs after an elbow he suffered in Lisbon before the Benfica in the quarter-final first leg against Benfica, "I thought it was okay, but later in the second half, which seemed to be getting worse and I was struggling to breathe to be honest." The 31-year-old, despite the injury, was able to play 90 minutes of Saturday's Premier League against Aston Villa. "When you have one in the ribs, you can not do anything about it, you can try, just to get better, but I can get," said Terry, who on Thursday will undergo medical tests to determine whether available or not to face the azulgranas.
