Barcelona have confirmed that Nelson Semedo is expected to miss the next five weeks after picking up a calf problem against Celta Vigo.

The right-back was forced off midway through the first half of the clash at the Camp Nou and is now set for some time on the sidelines.

“Tests carried out on the first team player Nélson Semedo have confirmed that he has a calf injury in his left leg and will be out for around 5 weeks.”

Barcelona will also be without Sergi Roberto for their next La Liga match after he picked up his fifth booking of the season against Celta. All of which means Moussa Wague should make his first start of the season next time out against Leganes.
