Frenkie de Jong and Sergi Roberto are both out of Barcelona’s clash with Sevilla on Friday due to injury.

The duo sat out the group session on Thursday morning and did “specific work.” Barcelona later confirmed they are not part of the squad.

De Jong has a calf strain and Roberto has a fractured rib. The club have not stated how long they expect the duo to be out of action for.

Roberto has started both of Barca’s games since La Liga resumed but now looks set to be replaced by Nelson Semedo in the starting XI.

De Jong started Barca’s win over Real Mallorca but asked to be subbed late on after feeling some discomfort and was not used at all against Leganes.
