Barcelona attacker Dembele hit by month-long injury

Barcelona attacker Ousmane Dembele has been hit by a month-long injury.

The French winger will be out for around a month after medical tests this morning confirmed he had suffered yet another hamstring injury.

An official medical report from the club said the following: "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."
