The first news about Ousmane Dembele's injury against Leganes is calming. After an initial scare where both his knee and ankle could have been affected, now just the latter is hurt.

Ernesto Valverde and the club officially said that he has a "light sprain". However neither siad how long Dembele will be out.

"He was calm and we hope it's not too long," said Valverde. "He's someone who breaks through defences and is capable of opening up any side. We lose a lot without him."

The club's medical statement read: "Ousmane Dembele has a sprain in his left ankle. On Monday he will take tests to find the extent of the injury."

The Frenchman was one of the big protagonists of the game, scoring and impressing with a variety of skills.

Dembele has 13 goals this season and Barca will miss him.
