Barcelona’s Adriano out for 4 weeks
Barcelona defender Adriano will be sidelined for four weeks
after injuring his leg in the Copa del Rey final on Wednesday.
Adriano tore a muscle in his right thigh in the final minutes of
his team’s 1-0 loss to Real Madrid.
The club says the Brazilian left back will miss the rest of the
Spanish league season, but could return for the Champions League
final if Barcelona knocks out Madrid in the semifinals.
His absence will put extra strain on Barcelona’s already thin
defensive line, which has lost Eric Abidal to cancer surgery.
