Barcelona star Jordi Alba has suffered a hamstring injury during the 1-1 draw against Sevilla at the Camp Not in the La Liga on Sunday.

Barcelona confirmed that the defender sustained a hamstring injury, although they did not state an expected recovery time.

“Tests carried out this morning have confirmed that Jordi Alba has a muscular injury in his right hamstring,” the brief statement started.

“He is out and his recovery will determine his availability.”

Manager Ronaldo Koeman handed Sergino Dest his Blaugrana debut following the injury to Alba because Junior Firpo who is the direct replacement for Alba is also on the treatment table.

Dest is expected to play more minute under Koeman this season, although there are two weeks until their next La Liga fixture due to the international break.
