Barcelona confirmed on Saturday that Sergi Roberto suffered a hamstring injury in the 1-1 draw against Atletico Madrid.

The 26-year-old started the game in midfield, with Nelson Semedo at right-back, but was forced off just before half-time after a collision with Koke.

Rafinha replaced Roberto at the start of the second half, with Barca subsequently confirming the nature of the Spain star’s injury.

It’s not clear how long Roberto will be out for ahead of a busy week for Barcelona.

They face PSV Eindhoven in the Champions League in midweek before taking on Villarreal on Sunday.
