Barca confirmed he will be out for up to 10 days, which could rule him out of the showdown with Real Madrid on December 23, as well as this weekend's Liga clash.

Deulofeu has struggled for form this season, but coach Ernesto Valverde said last month that he was "not worried" about the Spain international.

Deulofeu has made nine appearances in La Liga this season, scoring on one occasion.
