The French winger was taken off in the 29th minute for Ger­ard Deulofeu, with the score­line goal­less at the Coli­seum Al­fonso Perez. “Ous­mane Dem­bele has a ham­string in­jury in his left leg, more tests are needed to find out the ex­tent of the in­jury,” said Barcelona in a state­ment.

Dem­bele be­came Barcelona’s record sign­ing in Au­gust when the Cata­lans paid Borus­sia Dort­mund a fee which could reach 147 mil­lion eu­ros ($175.53 mil­lion) with ad­dons, af­ter Ney­mar de­parted for Paris Saint-Ger­main. — Reuters
