Mascherano ruled out with hamstring injury

Barcelona’s Javier Mascherano could be out of action for 15 days after suffering a hamstring injury on Tuesday.

The Argentina international suffered the setback in Barcelona’s 4-1 win over Real Sociedad at Camp Nou and was substituted after 35 minutes.

It was then confirmed by Barcelona, following tests on Wednesday, that the 29-year-old is facing at least 10 days on the sidelines.

A statement on the Spanish champions’ website read: “Javier Mascherano underwent medical tests on Wednesday morning to determine the extent of the injury suffered in last night’s league match at home to Real Sociedad.

“It has been confirmed that he has sprained his right hamstring and will therefore be sidelined for 10 to 15 days.”

It means Mascherano will miss the three games leading up to the international break.

These include La Liga fixtures against Almeria and Real Valladolid, as well as the UEFA Champions League tie against Celtic.

Mascherano’s injury is the latest to cause boss Gerardo Martino a headache, with captain Carles Puyol and Jordi Alba both out of action already.
