Barcelona forward Dembele out 10 weeks with leg injury
Barcelona released the medical report on Friday, two days after Dembele had to be substituted in the first half of its 3-1 win over Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League.
The player wept when he walked gingerly off the field.
The 22-year-old France forward has been plagued by injuries since joining Barcelona from Dortmund in 2017 on a then-club transfer record of 105 million euros (then $124 million) plus add-ons that could reach 40% of the fee.
He has already missed five matches this season due to a muscle injury.
Dembele will miss Sunday’s match at Atlético Madrid and the clásico against Real Madrid on Dec. 18 at Camp Nou.
