Barcelona confirmed on Sunday that Philippe Coutinho will be out for around 10 days after picking up a thigh injury in their 2-0 win over Getafe.

The Brazilian started the game at the Camp Nou but was replaced by Abel Ruiz in the second half after picking up the problem.

The injury means that Coutinho will miss next weekend’s final La Liga fixture against Eibar, although he should be fit for the Copa del Rey final against Valencia on May 25.
