Pique set for month out

Barcelona defender Gerard Pique is set for a month on the sidelines after suffering an injury in Sunday’s 1-1 Catalan derby draw with Espanyol.

The Spain international netted a late equaliser for the Blaugrana but suffered a knock following a rough challenge from home striker Gerard Moreno.

The 31-year-old is now a massive doubt for Barca’s Champions League first leg clash against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge later this month but should be back for the return in March.

Pique is also set to miss the Copa del Rey semi-final second leg against Valencia on Thursday while also sitting out league games against Getafe, Eibar, Girona and Las Palmas.
