Barcelona face up to Jeffrén absence

Jeffrén will sit out FC Barcelona's UEFA Champions League Group D games at FC København and Panathinaikos FC next month after the attacker dislocated his left shoulder.

Forward Jeffrén will be unavailable for FC Barcelona's UEFA Champions League trips to FC København and Panathinaikos FC next month because of a dislocated left shoulder sustained on Copa del Rey duty.

The 22-year-old attacking player was replaced 30 minutes into Tuesday's 2-0 victory at AD Ceuta in the last 32 of the cup – his first Barcelona start of the season – after falling awkwardly. Tests have since shown that the Spanish Under-21 international will be sidelined for at least four weeks, missing the encounter with FCK on 2 November and the visit to Athens three weeks later. The Blaugrana lead Group D by a point from København having picked up two wins and a draw from three matches.
