Gerard Pique juggles business with soccer at Barcelona

BARCELONA, Spain (AP) With his plan to revamp tennis' Davis Cup, Barcelona defender Gerard Pique is laying the groundwork for a life after soccer.

Barcelona, however, needs its budding entrepreneur more now than ever to help stop a slump in the Spanish league.

Pique will anchor a defense that has lost two players to injury when Barcelona hosts league leader Sevilla on Saturday. With both Samuel Umtiti (left knee) and Thomas Vermaelen (right leg) unavailable, Pique will start alongside former Sevilla player Clement Lenglet.
