Crocked Keita out for four weeks

MADRID - Barcelona midfielder Seydou Keita will be out for around four weeks after he damaged his right hamstring in Sunday's 2-1 defeat at Atletico Madrid, the La Liga leaders said on their website.

The Mali international had to be replaced in only the second minute at the Calderon and will probably miss six matches, including Barca's Champions League last-16 tie home and away to VfB Stuttgart, the club said.

Keita is the fifth Barca player to sustain an injury in the past week, joining defenders Daniel Alves, Eric Abidal and Dmytro Chygrynskiy and midfielder Yaya Toure.
