Barcelona suffered an injury blow early on in their La Liga clash against Celta Vigo on Saturday as Ousmane Dembele was forced off with injury.

The Frenchman was named in the starting XI but lasted only a few minutes before picking up a problem and being replaced by Alex Collado.

Barcelona subsequently confirmed he has suffered a hamstring injury and will undergo more tests on the problem:

It’s not clear how serious the injury is but it certainly looks unlikely he will be in the starting XI for Tuesday’s Champions League semi-final second leg against Liverpool.
