Barcelona defender Bartra out for 15-20 days


BARCELONA, Spain (AP) -Barcelona will be without defender Marc Bartra for 15 to 20 days due to a leg injury.

The Spanish club says Bartra hurt a muscle in his right leg after coming on as a late substitute during the team's 3-1 home win over Real Zaragoza on Saturday.

Barcelona recently recovered both first-choice center backs Gerard Pique and Carles Puyol from injuries.

Barcelona leads the Spanish league and visits Spartak Moscow on Tuesday in the Champions League.
