Jordi Alba will be out inured for between 7 and 10 days. Tests carried out on Sunday morning by the FC Barcelona medical team have confirmed that he is suffering from a hamstring strain in his right leg. The defender picked up his injury during the second half of Spain’s World Cup qualifier against Finland on Friday.

He will definitely miss Tuesday’s international against France and is a serious doubt for the matches against Celtaand Paris Saint-Germain.

Since joining Barça, Alba has made 35first team appearances and scored 5goals.
