Barcelona midfielder Thiago Motta looks set to be sidelined for around three weeks through injury.

The Brazilian star picked up a knock to his left knee during Barca's 2-1 friendly win over Figueres.

The 21-year-old was forced from the field after just four minutes of the game following a clash with Figueres' Oscar Ramirez.

Motta will have further tests on the knock to discern the full extent of his injury, but the initial prognosis is that he will be out of action for around three weeks.

Barca's victory in the game came courtesy of a spectacular goal from Brazilian star Ronaldinho.
