21 October 2015, 18:57

Madrid - Barcelona midfielder Sergi Roberto has added to the European champions' growing injury list with a groin strain that could keep him out for up to 10 days.

"Tests on Wednesday morning reveal that first team player Sergi Roberto has pulled an adductor tendon in his left groin," Barcelona said in a statement on their website.

"He is expected to be out of action for seven to ten days."

Roberto has become a key member of Luis Enrique's stretched squad this season, making 12 appearances in a variety of positions.

He will miss Sunday's home game against Eibar in La Liga and next week's visit to Villanovense in the Copa del Rey, but could be back for the trip to Getafe on October 31.

Barca are already without injured midfielders Andres Iniesta and Rafinha, whilst Lionel Messi isn't set to return to action for at least another three weeks as he recovers from knee ligament damage.
