Adriano's injury deepens Barca's defensive concerns

Barcelona, Spain (Sports Network) - Barcelona sustained another injury to a defender over the weekend as Adriano limped off with a leg problem in the first half of the team's 3-1 win over Celta Vigo.

The Brazilian opened the scoring for the Catalan side but had to be replaced seven minutes prior to halftime with an adductor injury in his right leg.

Adriano has tallied three goals in seven La Liga games this season and he is expected to miss the next three weeks with the problem.

His absence adds to the injury issues in defense for manager Tito Vilanova, who is already without Carles Puyol and Gerard Pique.
