Barcelona’s Adriano doubtful for Spanish Super Cup

Barcelona says defender Adriano is doubtful for Wednesday’s

second leg of the Spanish Super Cup after injuring his right


The Spanish club says Adriano ”strained a muscle in his right

leg” after scoring the winner in Sunday’s 1-0 victory over Malaga.

He was substituted at halftime of the Spanish league game.

Barcelona hosts Atletico with the Super Cup poised at 1-1 after

the first leg.

Barcelona may also be without forward Lionel Messi, who missed

Sunday’s match with a left thigh bruise.

Adriano has proven prone to muscle injuries throughout his three

previous seasons with Barcelona.
