Barcelona have confirmed that Jordi Alba will be out for 10 days after suffering a hamstring injury against Athletic Bilbao on Sunday.

The left-back was replaced by Marc Bartra midway through the second half at Camp Nou as La Blaugrana went on to defeat the Basques 6-0.

Barca’s official website details “discomfort” in Alba’s right hamstring, which is enough to rule him out of the side’s upcoming games against Athletic on Wednesday and Malaga three days later.

Lionel Messi also picked up an injury in the match, although his knock is understood to be minor.
