Barcelona defender Adriano is delighted for Alexis Sanchez after his brace against Real Valladolid.

Alexis has stepped in for Lionel Messi to impress.

"The goals have come to him because of his hard work and patience. He's on excellent form," said Adriano.

Of his own form, the Brazilian added: "I'm very happy that I've been able to stay healthy, I'm working hard, I get the rest I need and I'm eating well, that's all important in order to not pick up injuries."
