FC Barcelona defender Gerard Pique sustained a leg injury in the loss to Real Sociedad and will be out of action for two weeks, the team’s medical staff said.

Pique injured his right leg Saturday in the match at Anoeta Stadium, where Real Sociedad beat Barcelona 3-1 and knocked the team out of the Spanish League lead.

Pique will miss the league match against Almeria, the Spanish national team’s friendly with Italy at Madrid’s Vicente Calderon Stadium and probably the league match against Valladolid.

The player is expected to be back in action for the Champions League quarterfinals match pitting Barça against Manchester City at Camp Nou on March 12.
