Barcelona’s reserve goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen suffered a sprained rib during a training session on Wednesday, the Spanish club said.
“His availability for the upcoming fixtures will depend on his recovery from the injury,” Barcelona said in a statement.
Cillessen, a 29-year-old Dutchman, joined the La Liga champions from Ajax in 2016 but has struggled to dislodge Marc-Andre Ter Stegen from the number one spot.
Barcelona also announced that midfielder Sergi Samper, 23, has been diagnosed with a left ankle sprain.
