Philippe Coutinho will reportedly be out for at least three weeks after picking up a hamstring injury in the Clasico defeat to Real Madrid.

Barcelona announced on Sunday that the Brazil international is out injured but did not offer any indication as to when he might return.

AS report that Coutinho will miss the next three weeks which means he will sit out games against Juventus, Alaves, Dynamo Kiev and Real Betis.

Barca’s game against Betis is the last before the final international break of 2020 which means Coutinho could be back in action when La Liga resumes,

The team’s first game back is a rather tasty tie against Atletico Madrid at the Wanda Metropolitano Stadium, and it seems Coutinho could be ready for that clash.
