Injured Ronaldinho ruled out of Sevilla clash

April 22, 2006

MADRID, April 22 (Reuters) - Barcelona forward Ronaldinho has been left out of the squad to play Sevilla in the Primera Liga on Sunday, due to a muscle problem.

'During training on Friday, Ronaldinho suffered bruising to his right thigh and will miss the next game to continue his treatment,' a statement on the Barcelona website said on Saturday.

Injured defender Oleguer and Sweden striker Henrik Larsson were also left out of the side.

Barcelona can retain the Primera Liga title this weekend with a victory in Seville, if second-placed Valencia lose or draw at Athletic Bilbao.

Barca face AC Milan at home in the second leg of the Champions League semi-final on Wednesday, holding a 1-0 lead.
