Barcelona’s bad weekend got even worse on Sunday when the club confirmed that Ousmane Dembele has suffered a fresh injury and is set for a spell on the sidelines.
The 23-year-old came on as a substitute at half-time of Saturday’s 2-1 defeat to Cadiz but has picked up a hamstring problem.

Barca have offered no clues as to how serious the injury is or how long Dembele is set to be sidelined for, but there’s no doubt it’s a real blow for club and player.
Dembele had enjoyed an injury-free run since making his long-awaited comeback this season and has scored four times for Barca in 2020-21.
The 23-year-looked to be finally making up for lost time at the Camp Nou, but this setback is a real blow. Early reports suggest he may only miss 2-3 weeks, so let’s hope it’s not serious and he’s back in action soon.
