Barcelona released a statement on their social media handle that read: "[Dembele] has a right thigh injury. He will undergo testing to determine the exact extent of the injury."

Ernesto Valverde was full of pity for the Frenchman: "I don't know if it's a relapse or what leg it is. It has been a rare move because it has been in a jump, in which the leg has gone backwards.

"Right now we are sad for him because we are qualified but the bad news is the injury.

"We know he is suffering and we will see if we can help him."
