Barcelona have issued an official statement to rule midfielder, Denis Suarez out of next week’s Champions League showdown with Chelsea.
Meanwhile, Suarez has only seen little game time under the tutelage of the incumbent Blaugrana head coach, Ernesto Valverde.
Despite that, the Spaniard was vying for a spot on the bench with skipper, Andres Iniesta also out with injury.
However, according to a valid report emanating from Football.london, the 24-year-old will play no part against Chelsea come next week.
And that is in the second leg of the last-16 fixture at Camp Nou having copped an adductor muscle strain.
The same report has dropped a hint that Suarez will be on the sidelines for nothing less than three weeks.
Barca have a slim advantage over the Blues having snatched a 1-1 draw in the first leg at Stamford Bridge.
