Brazilian defender Juliano Belletti may miss the second leg of FC Barcelona's UEFA Champions League tie against Liverpool FC after spraining his ankle.
Race against time
The 30-year-old sprained his left ankle during Wednesday's 2-1 home defeat at the Camp Nou but was forced to play on until the end of the match as coach Frank Rijkaard had already used his three substitutes. He is now expected to be out of action for between ten and 15 days, leaving him in doubt for the European champions' visit to Anfield on 6 March. Belletti is the only injured player in Rijkaard's squad following Lilian Thuram's recovery from a calf injury.
