WHAT HAPPENED? In another defensive injury blow for Barcelona, the club have confirmed that Danish international Christensen suffered ligament damage in their 1-0 Champions League loss at San Siro. The Blaugrana have confirmed he suffered a sprained ankle but did not say how long he would be sidelined.

THE BIGGER PICTURE: Barcelona's injury list currently includes some big names, including summer signings Jules Kounde and Hector Bellerin. Ronald Araujo, the popular Uruguayan centre-back, is also absent due to a serious thigh issue.

AND WHAT'S MORE: After making the switch to Camp Nou from Chelsea in the summer, Christensen has played six times in all competitions for Barcelona. He has started every Champions League match, but could now face a spell on the sidelines.

WHAT NEXT FOR CHRISTENSEN? Christensen looks set to miss Barca's next La Liga outing against Celta Vigo on Sunday, and depending on the severity of his injury, he could also sit out their return outing against Inter in the Champions League on October 12.
