Barcelona left-back Jordi Alba has been ruled out for another six weeks after suffering a muscular injury on Thursday.

The Spanish international has been sidelined for the past three weeks due to a right hamstring problem and was thought to be nearing a return to action.

However, he will now miss Barca’s first meeting with Real Madrid this season on October 26, as well as the two Champions League games against AC Milan. — AFP
