Barcelona defender Ronald Araujo receives upbeat report on knee injury

Barcelona defender Ronald Araujo has avoided serious knee injury.

Araujo broke down during victory at Real Sociedad last night amid concerns of a serious knee injury.

But AS says initial scans this morning suggest the Uruguayan will miss only one to weeks due to a strain.

There is no breakage, so in principle he will miss this Sunday's game against Rayo Vallecano.

But he could already be available for next week against Mallorca.
