Ousmane Dembele injury doubt for Lyon second leg

Barcelona could be without Ousmane Dembele for their Champions League last 16 second leg tie against Lyon on Wednesday night.

Ernesto Valverde's side host the Ligue 1 outfit after drawing 1-1 in the first leg, but the French international is a doubt after suffering a hamstring injury in the 3-1 weekend win over Rayo Vallecano.

The 21 year-old came on as a half time substitute at the Nou Camp, and a post match scan confirmed a hamstring strain, although no timescale has been placed on his recovery as yet.

After missing a significant portion of last season with a hamstring tear, the club will not rush the former Borussia Dortmund back into action, with Philippe Coutinho on stand by to replace him.

Valverde will confirm his match day squad to face Lyon after his press conference on Tuesday evening.
