Barcelona confirmed on Thursday that Malcom will miss the next “10 to 15 days” after suffering a sprained ankle against Cultural Leonesa on Wednesday.

The Brazilian was forced off late on after picking up the injury, but fortunately it does not seem to be too serious a problem.

The news means that Malcom may not play for Barcelona again in 2018.

He will definitely miss the games against Espanyol and Tottenham and may not be fit for the last two La Liga fixtures against Levante and Celta Vigo either.
