Barcelona youngster Carles Aleñá will be out for two weeks, enough for him not to play again until 2017.

Aleñá hurt his left thigh during the match against Al Ahli in Doha, Qatar. It was late in the game, so Barcelona actually finished out the match with 10 men.

The young midfielder scored his first goal for the senior team in the first match against Hércules this year. But he will be unavailable for the return leg in the Copa del Rey.

The injury is not serious but it will be a shame that Aleñá will miss that second game against Hércules, plus he will be unavaible for Barcelona B.

Thankfully, no other injuries have been reported from the trip to Qatar.
