Barcelona confirm Nelson Semedo injury

Barcelona defender Nelson Semedo will miss "approximately five weeks" after injuring his hamstring in Sunday's La Liga clash with Girona.

Barcelona have revealed that Nelson Semedo will miss "approximately five weeks" after injuring his hamstring in Sunday's La Liga clash with Girona.

Luis Suarez scored a hat-trick, Lionel Messi netted twice and Philippe Coutinho registered his first La Liga goal as Barcelona thumped Catalan rivals Girona 6-1 at Camp Nou.

The victory has come at a cost for the Spanish giants, however, with Semedo picking up a hamstring problem in the latter stages of the contest, which will keep the Portugal international on the sidelines until early April.

"The club's medical services department can confirm that first-team player Semedo has suffered an injury to his left hamstring," read a statement from Barcelona. "Further tests carried out have indicated that he will be out for approximately five weeks."

Semedo has made 26 appearances in all competitions for Barcelona this season.
