Adriano out for three weeks

Barcelona defender Adriano is likely to be out for three weeks with a thigh strain, according to reports in Spain.

The Blaugrana full-back pulled up in the first half against Celta Vigo on Saturday evening, with a number of sources confirming that the Brazilian will miss a number of week with a tear to his right abductor

The injury comes in the wake of earlier set-backs to fellow defenders Carles Puyol and Gerard Pique.

The former Sevilla man had scored the opening goal against Paco Herrera's men, which they eventually won 3-1 at Camp Nou.
