Sprain sidelines Barça's Oleguer

Oleguer Presas will miss the visit of FC Shakhtar Donetsk next Wednesday as he recovers from a sprained ankle.

Oleguer Presas will miss FC Barcelona's UEFA Champions League tie against FC Shakhtar Donetsk next Wednesday because he needs ten days to recover from a sprained ankle.

Injured on Sunday
The 24-year-old defender sustained the injury during Sunday's 1-1 Primera División draw at Club Atlético de Madrid and was substituted after 59 minutes.

Celtic appearance
Oleguer came on for 27 minutes during Barça's Champions League Group F victory away to Celtic FC last week. As well as missing the Shakhtar tie, he will sit out Thursday's league match against Real Zaragoza.
