Barcelona confirmed on Wednesday that goalkeeper Neto suffered a sprained ankle during their 2-1 Copa del Rey win over UD Ibiza.

The Brazilian needed treatment at the start of the second half after appearing to land heavily on his ankle and Marc-Andre ter Stegen looked set to come on.

However, Neto managed to continue and see out the game, although he may now be set for a little spell out.

Ter Stegen will return to the team for Saturday’s clash against Valencia at Mestalla, with Inaki Pena likely to be the back-up if Neto is ruled out of the game.
