Barcelona confirmed on Thursday that Sergi Roberto is set for another spell out after picking up a thigh injury against Granada.

The versatile star made his first start since November at Los Carmenes but was forced off just before the hour mark.

Here’s Barcelona’s update:

Barca haven’t set a return date but reports reckon that Roberto will likely be out for at least a month. AS report that he will miss 4-5 weeks, while Catalunya Radio state at least six weeks.

Either way it looks as though Roberto, who scored the winner in 2017’s famous remontada, will have to sit out Barca’s two Champions League games against Paris Saint-Germain.

Sergino Dest looks the most likely option to feature at right-back after making his injury return off the bench against Granada, although Oscar Mingueza is another possibility for Ronald Koeman.
