Barcelona have suffered yet another injury blow with news that Philippe Coutinho will be unavailable for two-to-three weeks with a thigh injury.
The Catalan side announced Thursday that scans revealed Coutinho suffered "a small break in the femoral biceps" in his left thigh.
The injury rules Coutinho out of this weekend's match against Real Betis, as well as Brazil's upcoming games against Uruguay and Cameroon.
Based on the timeframe for his return, Coutinho might have a chance to return after the international break in time for the crucial league encounter with Atletico Madrid on Nov. 24.
Coutinho has scored 15 goals in 38 matches since joining Barcelona from Liverpool in January.
Coutinho joins Lionel Messi in the team's treatment room as the Argentine recovers from a broken arm suffered late last month. Messi, however, has returned to training, but Barcelona have yet to confirm whether he will be available against Betis, or rather after the international break.
