Barcelona’s Adriano doubtful for Spanish Super Cup
BARCELONA, Spain (AP) — Barcelona says defender Adriano is doubtful for Wednesday’s second leg of the Spanish Super Cup after injuring his right leg.
The Spanish club says Adriano “strained a muscle in his right leg” after scoring the winner in Sunday’s 1-0 victory over Malaga. He was substituted at halftime of the Spanish league game.
Barcelona hosts Atletico with the Super Cup poised at 1-1 after the first leg.
Barcelona may also be without forward Lionel Messi, who missed Sunday’s match with a left thigh bruise.
Adriano has proven prone to muscle injuries throughout his three previous seasons with Barcelona.
