Ousmane Dembele is facing up to a month on the sidelines at Barcelona with a hamstring injury, the La Liga giants have revealed.
The France international picked up a knock during a crushing 5-1 victory over Lyon on Wednesday, having entered that contest already nursing a slight complaint.
He stepped off the bench in a Champions League clash to find the target and book a place in the quarter-finals.
A statement released by Barca on their official website read: “Ousmane Dembele has undergone tests with the FC Barcelona Medical Services on Thursday morning and it has been confirmed that he has torn the femoral biceps muscle in his left hamstring.
“This means he will be out of action for an expected three or four weeks.”
He must also sit out upcoming fixtures for Barca, with Ernesto Valverde’s side set to take on Real Betis, Espanyol, Villarreal and Atletico Madrid before the middle of April.
