MADRID - Barcelona defender Adriano
Correia has been ruled out for four weeks with a torn thigh
muscle, the Spanish league leaders said on Thursday.
The Brazilian full-back picked up the injury during
extra-time in Barca's 1-0 King's Cup final defeat to Real Madrid
in Valencia on Wednesday.
Adriano's absence adds to coach Pep Guardiola's problems
with Eric Abidal and Bojan Krkic already out of action, and
captain Carles Puyol struggling with a muscle strain.
Barca have an eight-point lead at the top of La Liga with
six matches left to play and meet Real Madrid again in the
Champions League semi-finals which start next week.
