Barcelona may be without Philippe Coutinho on Sunday when they return to La Liga action at the Camp Nou against Levante.

The Brazilian did not feature at all against Juventus because of the problem and may not be risked at the weekend, according to Mundo Deportivo.

Ronald Koeman and his staff will check on Coutinho in training on Friday, with the team back to work after a rest day yesterday.

Coutinho missed training on Wednesday with the club’s permission, after becoming a father for the third time, but will be back with his team-mates today.

The injury is not thought to be serious but Barca want to be careful because Coutinho has only just returned from a month out with a similar type of problem.
