Barcelona have confirmed that forward Lionel Messi is to miss "approximately three weeks" of action after fracturing his right arm.
The 31-year-old landed awkwardly in the opening quarter of Barca's 4-2 win over Sevilla in Saturday evening's La Liga clash.
Messi, who had earlier assisted his side's first goal of the night at Camp Nou, had to be replaced by Ousmane Dembele for the remaining 65 minutes of the match.
