Barca full-back Douglas out for eight weeks

29 October 2015, 18:17

Madrid - Barcelona's injury problems were compounded on Thursday as Brazilian right-back Douglas was ruled out for up to eight weeks due to a foot injury.

The 25-year-old suffered the problem during his first start of the season in the European champions' 0-0 draw at third-tier Villanovense in the Copa del Rey on Wednesday.

"Tests carried out this morning have shown the Brazilian has a crack in the navicular bone of his right foot," Barcelona said in a statement on their website on Thursday.

"The estimated time out is around eight weeks."

Barca are already without four-time World Player of the Year Lionel Messi and Rafinha due to knee ligament injuries, whilst Javier Mascherano will miss Saturday's trip to Getafe due to suspension.

However, midfielders Andres Iniesta and Sergi Roberto could recover from muscle injuries in time to face Getafe.
