Maxwell sidelined for three weeks

MADRID - Barcelona's Brazilian defender Maxwell has been ruled out for three weeks with a torn muscle in his right leg, the La Liga club said on Monday.

Maxwell was injured in Barca's 3-2 victory at Sevilla on Saturday, but was already suspended for the league decider at home to Real Valladolid next Sunday.

A win for Pep Guardiola's side will see them retain their La Liga crown, as they lead Real Madrid by one point with one round of matches left to play. Real are away to Malaga.
