Barcelona left-back Lucas Digne could to miss the coming trip to Las Palmas on Sunday (14 May) after suffering a hamstring injury during the weekend's 4-1 victory over Villarreal. The news is a fresh blow for manager Luis Enrique as Sergi Roberto will also be unavailable for another key game in the battle with Real Madrid for the La Liga title.
Goals from Lionel Messi (two), Luis Suarez and Neymar helped Luis Enrique's side to secure a comfortable win over the fifth place of La Liga to keep the pressure on Los Blancos ahead of their last two games of the season.
Barcelona are currently leading the table due to a better head-to-head record but Real Madrid still have the destiny of the title as they have a game in hand to play against Celta Vigo.
The Catalans cannot afford to drop more points in their last two games remaining but Luis Enrique could be without five first-team players for the trip to the Canary Islands.
Scans have confirmed that Digne suffered a hamstring blow during the win over Villarreal after the former Paris Saint Germain left-back was forced off in the second half.
"Lucas Digne started against Villarreal, but was substituted in the 75th minute by Jordi Alba when Barça were up, 3-1. Tests carried out on the Frenchman have confirmed that he has suffered a strained right hamstring. His status is day to day," Barcelona confirmed on its official website.
Sergi Roberto will also miss the trip to Las Palmas throw suspension after picking up his fifth yellow card of the season against Villarreal.
Meanwhile, long-term injury duo Rafinha and Aleix Vidal are also ruled out for Las Palmas while the return of Jeremy Mathieu looks uncertain, as he is yet to play a game since the 3-0 defeat to Juventus on 11 April due to a problem in his achilles.
The situation leaves Luis Enrique with a major headache as he may have only four defenders available to face Las Palmas in Gerard Pique, Samuel Umtiti, Javier Mascherano and Jordi Alba.
Meanwhile, Barcelona will be hoping Real Madrid drop points against Sevilla, as their encounter with Jorge Sampaoli's side will come only four days after the second leg of the Champions League semi-finals with Atletico Madrid.
