Barcelona has been dealt Luis Suarez injury blow, as the striker is set to miss up to five weeks on the sidelines.

Barcelona and the Uruguayan Football Association announced the news on Thursday, confirming the striker will be sidelined for the start of the Liga campaign as well as upcoming World Cup qualifiers against Argentina and Paraguay.

Suarez appeared to suffer the injury in the 85th minute of Barca’s 2-0 loss to Madrid at Santiago Bernabeu, with Los Blancos triumphing 5-1 on aggregate. The 30-year-old managed to continue playing and finish the match despite the injury.

The news comes at a particularly unwelcome time for Barca, who open their Liga campaign against Real Betis on Sunday. The Catalans already are shorthanded in the attack following the world-record sale of Neymar to Paris Saint-Germain earlier this month, and midfielder Andres Iniesta sat out Wednesday’s Super Cup second leg with a thigh problem.

The Blaugrana are looking to bolster their squad in the wake of Neymar’s sale, but they are struggling to complete deals for Borussia Dortmund forward Ousmane Dembele and Liverpool midfielder Philippe Coutinho, with Nelson Semedo and Paulinho their two main summer signings thus far.

Barca also announced on Thursday that defender Gerard Pique is a doubt for the Betis clash because of a groin strain picked up against Madrid.
