Barcelona have confirmed both Sergi Roberto and Rafinha are set for a spell on the sidelines after picking up injuries against Atletico Madrid on Saturday.

Roberto has a hamstring problem which will rule him out for 3-4 weeks, while the news on Rafinha is far more worrying.

The club say he has suffered a torn ACL and will undergo surgery soon.

It’s a massive blow for Rafinha who had finally been seeing some game time at Barcelona, but it looks like his season might now be over.
