Spanish champions FC Barcelona have announced that forward has been ruled out for three to four weeks with a hamstring injury.

The club confirmed the news after undergoing tests with the news coming as another blow for a player who has had a stop-start Nou Camp career so far.

Barcelona made the announcement on their official website:

"Ousmane Dembélé has undergone tests with the FC Barcelona Medical Services on Thursday morning and it has been confirmed that he has torn the femoral biceps muscle in his left hamstring. This means he will be out of action for an expected three or four weeks."

"The French striker was on for the last twenty minutes of Wednesday’s 5-1 victory over Olympique Lyonnais in the Champions League round of 16, coming off the bench to convert the last goal of a memorable night of football."

'This was his third goal in the competition after also netting against PSV and Tottenham, taking his season total in all competitions up to 14," a statement read.

Dembele could now miss Barcelona's clash with La Liga title rivals Atletico Madrid on the 6th of April 2019.
