Sevilla wing-back Adriano is ready to face Espanyol winger Albert Riera this weekend.

Left-sided Adriano will replace the suspended right-back Daniel Alves for the match and said: "I have played against Giovani dos Santos and Lionel Messi, and now I could face Riera.

"He's always been a very difficult opponent, but I'll try to have a good match, because the whole world is watching these games."
