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:

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.
