Rafinha will not be fit for Celta Vigo's visit to Barcelona this weekend as Oscar Garcia begins his new job against one of his former clubs.
Garcia was appointed as Fran Escriba's replacement in Vigo earlier this week. His first game is against Barça at Camp Nou on Saturday night.
However, he will be without midfielder Rafinha, who has been denied a reunion against his former teammates. The Brazilian, who is only on loan at Celtla, will miss the game with a knee problem.
Rafinha has not played since the 2-1 loss at Real Betis 10 days ago. He sat out the 1-0 defeat at home to Getafe, which proved to be Escriba's last game in charge.
