Barcelona forward, Ousmane Dembélé, has been ruled out for a month after tearing his hamstring in Wednesday’s Champions League tie against Lyon.
Dembélé’s injury was confirmed by Barcelona on Thursday.
“Ousmane Dembélé 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,” a statement on the club’s website reads.
“The French striker was on for the last twenty minutes of Wednesday’s 5-1 victory over Olympique Lyonnais in the Champions League round of 16, coming off the bench to convert the last goal of a memorable night of football.
“This was his third goal in the competition after also netting against PSV and Tottenham, taking his season total in all competitions up to 14.”
