Barcelona striker Antoine Griezmann is expected to miss the last two rounds of the current championship season.
This absence comes after Griezmann suffered a thigh injury during the Catalan club match, which won 1-0 yesterday, Saturday, against Real Valladolid.
Griezmann was replaced during the break between the two halves of the match, and Barcelona said in a statement on Sunday that he had been injured in the right thigh.
The French national team has performed well this season, after moving last year from Atletico Madrid for 120 million euros.
Barcelona did not specify how long the striker will be absent from his ranks, but the local Sport newspaper said that he will be absent for three weeks, which means his absence from his team's next match against his guest, Osasuna, next Thursday, in addition to his last match in the season against Alaves in the last stadium next Sunday.
Thanks to yesterday's victory, Barcelona maintained their chance to compete for the league title, although the biggest rivals Real Madrid, at the top, could extend the difference between the two giants to four points if they beat Granada on Monday.
