Barça suffer Dani blow

FC Barcelona's Dani García will miss the Group H opener against Club Brugge KV due to injury.
FC Barcelona striker Dani García will be unavailable for next week's UEFA Champions League match against Club Brugge KV due to injury.

Missing from action
Dani faces a fortnight on the sidelines after he tore a muscle in his left leg in training on Thursday. The 27-year-old is ruled out of the Group H opener at Camp Nou as well as Saturday's league trip to Club Athletic Bilbao.

Just back to fitness
The former RCD Mallorca player had just returned to fitness after sitting out much of last season with a knee injury. He could also miss the Matchday 2 visit to Galatasaray SK.
