Barcelona have confirmed that defender Nelson Semedo will be out for the next five weeks after injuring a hamstring against Girona.
Semedo started at right-back and was having a fine game until he pulled up late on and hobbled off, leaving Barca to finish the game with 10 men having used all their subs.

Semedo’s injury comes at a bad time and means he will miss some pretty important games, including the La Liga clash with Atletico Madrid and the Champions League return leg against Chelsea.
The full-back should be back in action towards the start of April and in the meantime Sergi Roberto should come back in at right-back for Barca.
