Dembele will leave the field for two weeks due to an injury

 

Barcelona striker Ousmane Dembele will be away from the pitch two weeks after twisting an ankle in Sunday’s 3-1 victory over Leganes, the Spanish club said Monday.

The news is a blow for the 21-year-old French international, who opened the scoring for the leaders of La Liga and has had some very outstanding performances in recent weeks, scoring six times in the last ten games.

The injury means that it is likely to miss the two quarter-final matches of the Copa del Rey with Sevilla and the Catalan derby on Sunday in Girona.

He may also not be there for Valencia’s visit to Barcelona in early February, although he should be fit for the resumption of the Barca Champions League in February’s Round of 16 against Olympique Lyon.

Philip Coutinho, another billionaire signing for Barça in recent seasons, is expected to fill the void left by the Frenchman. The Brazilian has had a few minutes of play this season, after coming 12 months ago from Liverpool for 160 million euros.
