Barcelona were dealt a second injury blow on Wednesday as Jasper Cillessen picked up a rib injury in training.

The club have already confirmed Sergi Samper is set for another spell out with an ankle problem. Cillessen will now join the midfielder on the injured list.

“FC Barcelona goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen has picked up a sprain to an intercostal muscle on his left side.

“His availability for the upcoming fixtures will depend on his recovery from the injury.”

It seems unlikely Cillessen will be fit to take his usual place on the bench for Barcelona’s clash with Valladolid on Saturday so either Inaki Pena or Jokin Ezkieta or will step in.
