Adriano will be for Milan

The defender will return next week, while the return of Afellay is presumed imminent.

Adriano continues the recovery process elongation in the hamstrings. Medical services will not take risks and the Brazilian is ruled out of the commitment to the Athletic. Given this scenario, Guardiola must resolve the usual dilemma from no Abidal: keep Puyol at left or go for the defense of three, as it did in Mallorca. Adriano is progressing well and it looks like it will be able to receive the medical on Monday. Good news considering that Tuesday will host the return of the Champions League against Milan.

Meanwhile, Afellay could be discharged after the match against Milan. So Guardiola would be able to recover a more effective face-to-shore bands play for the team.

David Villa also stars good news. The tibia fractured well and has welded the forward has started to walk with ease. Is expected to begin within days to practice running. The Asturian's dream is to reach the European Championship. (via SPORT)
