Madrid: Ousmane Dembele suffered a hamstring injury and was substituted in his first La Liga start for Barcelona during their clash with Getafe on Saturday.

The French winger who is likely to be out for three weeks, was taken off in the 29th minute for Gerard Deulofeu, with the scoreline goalless at the Coliseum Alfonso Perez.

"Ousmane Dembele has a hamstring injury in his left leg, more tests are needed to find out the extent of the injury," said Barcelona in a statement.

Dembele, Barcelona’s record signing, had started against Juventus in the club’s 3-0 Champions League win on Tuesday.

Reports in Spanish media suggested the 20-year-old would league fixtures against Eibar, Girona and Las Palmas, as well as a Champions League clash in Lisbon against Sporting.
