BARCELONA, Spain — Barcelona says that France forward Ousmane Dembele has a leg injury and is unfit to play just two days before its Champions League semifinal at Liverpool.

The Spanish champions say on Sunday that tests have confirmed the initial report that Dembele injured a muscle in his right thigh early in Saturday’s 2-0 loss at Celta Vigo.

Barcelona did not say how long it expects him to be out, but he was left off its squad to play at Anfield on Tuesday when Barcelona will defend a 3-0 first-leg victory.

This is Dembele’s fifth injury since joining Barcelona in 2017.
