The Spain international limped out of the action after just nine minutes to be replaced by Eric Abidal and, after undergoing tests, Pique is likely to be out of action for about 15 days, according to the Barca website.

In the next two weeks, Barca face Viktoria Plzen in the Champions League, and Sevilla, Granada and Real Mallorca in La Liga.

Pique, who was also troubled by a calf problem at the start of the season, is one of a host of Barca players to be hit by injury this term, with Alexis Sanchez, Andres Iniesta, Cesc Fabregas, Abidal and Ibrahim Afellay also being ruled out for varying periods since the start of the campaign.

Barca beat Racing Santander 3-0 at the Nou Camp to remain at the top of the La Liga standings.
