Roma's Adriano out for a month

Adriano is out for a month after dislocating his right shoulder in AS Roma's Coppa Italia defeat of S.S. Lazio, making the striker unavailable for the first leg against FC Shakhtar Donetsk.

AS Roma striker Adriano has been ruled out of the home first leg of his side's UEFA Champions League round of 16 tie against FC Shakhtar Donetsk after dislocating his right shoulder.

The 28-year-old suffered the injury in Wednesday's 2-1 defeat of S.S. Lazio in the Coppa Italia and although he will not require surgery, the Brazilian – yet to score since joining Roma in the summer – will be out for a month, according to the club's website. Roma welcome Shakhtar on 16 February and travel to Ukraine on 8 March.
