Barcelona suffered a fresh injury blow on Saturday when Luis Suarez was forced off in the first half of the champions’ La Liga clash with Levante.
The Uruguay international started the match but was replaced four minutes before half-time by Carles Perez.
Barcelona have now confirmed that Suarez has suffered an injury to his right leg which will rule him out of action.

There is no indication of how long Suarez is out for but it seems certain he will miss Tuesday’s Champions League clash with Slavia Prague at the Camp Nou.
Suarez is Barca’s top scorer this season so far with eight goals in all competitions, but Lionel Messi is closing fast after opening the scoring against Levante with his sixth of the season.
