Barcelona winger Ousmane Dembele will be sidelined for between three and four weeks with a hamstring injury.
The club announced the news on Thursday

Dembele came off the bench to score in Barcelona’s 5-1 UEFA Champions League win over Lyon on Wednesday in the second leg of their last-16 tie.
It was his 14th goal of the campaign in all competitions.
The 21-year-old is an important component of Barcelona’s front line, as he’s their biggest source of pace now that Luis Suarez and Lionel Messi are in their 30s.
He’s also an excellent dribbler and equally skilled with both feet, so he’s a handful for defenders to deal with.
The Brazilian arrived last summer, but Valverde has been reluctant to make use of the 22-year-old, handing him just one start outside the Copa del Rey.
