MADRID - Barcelona's injury problems in
defence worsened on Sunday when tests showed centre-back Gabriel
Milito would be out for around four weeks with a thigh injury.
Barca, who defend a two-goal lead over arch rivals Real
Madrid in Tuesday's Champions League semi-final second leg at
their Nou Camp stadium, had also lost reserve team fullback
Martin Montoya, they said in a statement on their website.
Montoya suffered a fractured clavicle in Saturday's 2-1 La
Liga defeat at Real Sociedad and required surgery that would
sideline him for around six weeks, the club added.
Coach Pep Guardiola is already missing left-backs Eric
Abidal, Maxwell and Adriano.
There was better news on Andres Iniesta's calf injury when
the Spain midfielder, who missed last week's first leg at the
Bernabeu, took part in Sunday's training session, Barca said.
