Ankle sprain rules out Renato

Sevilla FC will be without Renato for up to three weeks after the midfielder sprained his left ankle in Saturday's Primera División win against FC Barcelona.

Sevilla FC will be without Renato for up to three weeks after the midfielder sprained his left ankle in the 2-1 win against FC Barcelona on Saturday that took the Andalusian club top of the Primera División.

Ankle sprain
The 27-year-old Brazilian international landed heavily on his left leg and limped off nine minutes before half-time, with José Luis Martí coming on. An initial scan revealed a sprain which means Renato will miss both legs of the UEFA Cup Round of 16 tie against FC Shakhtar Donetsk, on 8 and 15 March. Holders Sevilla overcame FC Steaua Bucuresti 3-0 on aggregate in the last 32 of the competition, and Saturday's victory moved them a point clear of Barcelona in the Spanish title race.
