THE VERDICT: During his loan last year at Real Betis, Bellerin showed he had the quality to compete at a high level in Spain. He's made just one start so far for Barcelona but could gain a larger role soon if this injury proves less serious than expected, given the problems Araujo and Kounde are experiencing.

WHAT NEXT FOR BARCELONA? Barcelona will face Mallorca in Liga action on Saturday before visiting Inter in the Champions League next Tuesday.
