Barcelona without Fàbregas for Plzeň visit

FC Barcelona have been dealt an injury blow with the news that Cesc Fàbregas will miss their UEFA Champions League Group H game at home to FC Viktoria Plzeň with a hamstring injury.

FC Barcelona will be without Cesc Fàbregas for their UEFA Champions League Group H match at home to FC Viktoria Plzeň after the midfielder was ruled out for three weeks with a hamstring injury.

Fàbregas picked up a muscle injury in his right leg during the Azulgrana's final training session ahead of their Liga encounter at Real Sporting de Gijón. The former Arsenal FC midfielder joins Alexis Sánchez (hamstring) and Ibrahim Affelay (knee) on the sidelines having featured as a substitute during Barcelona's 5-0 victory against FC BATE Borisov on matchday two. The 24-year-old will also miss Spain's final UEFA EURO 2012 Group I qualifiers against the Czech Republic on 7 October and Scotland four days later.

Barcelona are level with AC Milan on four points at the top of their section.
