La Liga By: Ikponmwosa Umweni | 29/03/2018

Barcelona have been dealt a blow with the news that Lucas Digne has been sidelined for three weeks with a thigh problem.

The 24-year-old started in France 3-2 defeat to Colombia last week but the left-back was substituted after just 22 minutes due to an injury which will sideline him for a little while.

Although Digne is only back-up to Jordi Alba the injury comes at a bad time with a packed fixture schedule and injuries starting to bite.

The Catalan giants have a number of important fixtures coming up, with the Champions League double-header with Roma, a La Liga clash with Valencia and the Copa del Rey final with Sevilla all coming up before April 21.

Digne has made a total of 11 starts and four substitute outings in all competitions for Ernesto Valverde's La Liga leaders this season
