Key Barcelona player to miss El Clasico

Barcelona will be without one of their key players for October 16th El Clasico at the Santiago Bernabeu stadium.

According to Diario AS, Barcelona defender Jules Kounde will be out for almost 5 weeks after suffering a hamstring injury on his left leg while on international duty for France.

Kounde has played at right-back for Barcelona since his move from Sevilla in the summer. Sergi Roberto or Héctor Bellerín are Xavi’s alternatives at right-back for Barcelona.

Another Barcelona defender Roland Araújo also suffered an injury while on international duty with Uruguay against Iran.
