BARCELONA, Spain (AP) - Barcelona says defender Jeremy Mathieu will be sidelined for two to three weeks with a leg injury.

That will rule Mathieu out of Wednesday’s Champions League match at Ajax and next weekend’s Spanish league game at Almeria.

Barcelona says the French international hurt his right leg after Barcelona’s 1-0 loss to Celta Vigo at home on Saturday.

Barcelona’s loss to Celta cost it the Spanish league lead and left it trailing new leader Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid.
