Ousmane Dembele has suffered yet another injury blow after being forced off in the first half of Barcelona’s clash with Borussia Dortmund.

The Frenchman got the nod to start in attack against his former side ahead of Antoine Griezmann and lined up alongside Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez.

However, he lasted only 26 minutes after picking up a problem that saw him throw his boots off in frustration and look to be close to tears as he went off.

Barcelona offered an update during the match to say he has a thigh injury and will undergo more tests to determine the severity of the problem.
