Injured Coutinho to miss Juventus clash

Barcelona star Philippe Coutinho is set to miss the upcoming Juventus clash in Champions League with a hamstring injury.

Barcelona have just confirmed the Brazilian picked up a hamstring injury during yesterday’s El Clasico against Real Madrid.

“Test on Sunday morning have revealed that Philippe Coutinho has a left biceps femoris (hamstring) injury. Exactly how long that means he will be out of action depends on how the injury evolves,” Barcelona’s official announcement reads.

“Coutinho started Saturday’s Clásico and played the full ninety minutes, and has appeared in a total of six competitive games thus far this season (five in LaLiga and one in the Champions League), scoring one goal in each competition.”

The Catalans are due to face Juventus in Champions League on Wednesday but the Brazilian won’t be fit to play.

The Old Lady are without Cristiano Ronaldo who has tested positive for Covid but the Portuguese star can still make it for the game if he’ll have a negative swab test 24 hours before the kick-off.
