Malta Independent - - SPORT -

Barcelona says de­fender Jeremy Mathieu will be side­lined for about three weeks be­cause of a right foot in­jury. Tests con­ducted yes­ter­day showed the ex­tent of the in­jury, which the France in­ter­na­tional sus­tained dur­ing a 1-0 loss to Es­panyol in the Cata­lan Su­per Cup. Barcelona, which rested its top play­ers in Tues­day’s cup match, hosts last-place Granada in the Span­ish league on Satur­day. Fel­low de­fend­ers Ger­ard Pique and Jordi Alba will also miss the game through in­jury.
