Barcelona have confirmed Sergi Roberto is facing a spell on the sidelines due to a hamstring injury.
The versatile 31-year-old was replaced by Eric Garcia just 15 minutes into a goalless LaLiga draw at Getafe after doing damage to his left leg.
Sergi Roberto had a scan on Monday and Barca revealed he has done damage to his biceps femoral muscle.
The loss of the club stalwart is a blow ahead of the leaders’ clash with third-placed Atletico Madrid on Sunday.
