Spanish LaLiga: Barcelona Top Striker Out For Four Weeks

Published

Barcelona forward Ousmane Dembele has been ruled out of playing for four weeks with a hamstring injury.

The injury puts doubt on his availability for the Champions League quarter-finals and much of the final stretch of Barca’s bid to win La Liga.

A club statement on Thursday said: “Tests have confirmed that Ousmane Dembele has torn his left hamstring.

“The expected time out is between three and four weeks.”

Dembele came off the bench to score Barca’s final goal in Wednesday’s 5-1 thrashing of Olympique Lyonnais which sent the Catalan team into the quarter-finals of Europe’s top competition.

Barca will find out their next opponents in the Champions League in Friday’s draw, with the first leg games taking place on April 9 and 10 and the return matches on April 16 and 17.
