Barcelona suffered a fresh injury blow on Tuesday as left-back Jordi Alba was forced off with injury in the first half of their Champions League clash against Borussia Dortmund.

Alba departed on 40 minutes after suffering a hamstring injur in his left leg and was replaced by Sergi Roberto at the Westfalenstadion.

Back-up left-back Junior Firpo is in Dortmund with Barcelona for the clash but did not make the bench for the game which seems to be why Ernesto Valverde turned to Roberto.

It remains to be seen how serious Alba’s injury is but the team may have to make do without him for Saturday’s trip to Granada in La Liga.
