Alba out for 10 days

Jordi Alba will miss the next 10 days after picking up a hamstring injury during Spain's 1-0 victory over Ukraine in Euro 2016 qualifying on Friday.

The left-back was replaced by Juan Bernat for the last 11 minutes at the Sanchez Pizjuan and promptly returned to Barcelona, where he underwent tests on Saturday morning.

A first-degree hamstring strain was detected by club doctors, ruling him out of La Roja's friendly trip to Netherlands on Tuesday.

In addition, Alba is also expected to miss La Blaugrana's matches against Celta Vigo and Almeria over the next fortnight.
