Adriano: first option for Mallorca

Jesús Carrillo

With Dani Alves suspended, Pep Guardiola is going to have find somebody to replace him. Adriano Correia is the most obvious option to stand in for his compatriot in the right back position.

Adriano: first option for Mallorca

Unbeaten in Mallorca
Adriano has played Mallorca in Palma before. Wearing the Sevilla shirt he appeared there four times, winning once and drawing the other three. So Adriano has yet to experience defeat on the island.

However, we will have to look at all the options”.

8 league matches

The versatile Brazilian has played eight league games so far, in which he played the full 90 in two (Deportivo and Racing Santander). In the other games he has come off the bench. Of these eight games involving Adriano, Barcelona have won seven.

Cup scorer

His goal opened the scoring in that game, in a competition in which Guardiola has used the Brazilian fairly regularly, with six appearances in eight games. Adriano has also been involved in three Champions League games, twice as a starter, and provided an assist for one goal.
