Barca's Pique sidelined with foot injury

Barcelona defender Gerard Pique is expected to miss two to three weeks after picking up an injury to his left foot in the 11th minute of the club's 3-2 victory over Spartak Moscow on Wednesday.

The 25-year-old was subbed off following a challenge from Spartak midfielder Romulo, with Alex Song taking his place.

Pique's injury leaves Barcelona very thin in the center of defense as Carles Puyol sustained a knee injury in the club's defeat of Getafe at the weekend and should be sidelined between four and six weeks.
