Barcelona have confirmed that Sergi Roberto will miss Wednesday’s Champions League clash against Tottenham at Wembley Stadium due to injury.

The 26-year-old was forced off early in the second half of Saturday’s 1-1 draw with Athletic Bilbao with a problem which will rule him out for at least one match.

His injury makes it almost certain that Nelson Semedo will play at right-back against Spurs, as Barcelona aim to put a poor run of form behind them.

Spurs warmed up for Wednesday’s game with a 2-0 victory at Huddersfield Town thanks to two goals from captain Harry Kane.
