Barcelona forward Ousmane Dembélé will miss Saturday’s La Liga match against Getafe because of injury, the club has announced.

Dembélé suffered a hamstring injury in the season opener against Athletic Bilbao and missed the following six weeks before returning to action in last Tuesday’s win over Villarreal at the Camp Nou. The Frenchman has suffered a number of injuries during his time at Camp Nou and this is the latest setback for a player who hasn’t yet realized his potential mainly due to his physical issues.

With Dembélé joining Lionel Messi and Ansu Fati on the sidelines Barça have only three available forwards for the game against Getafe: Luis Suárez, Antoine Griezmann and Carles Pérez.
