Barcelona, Dec 6: Barcelona forward Malcom is set to be sidelined for up to 15 days after he sprained his right ankle, the Catalan club confirmed on Thursday.

The 21-year-old Brazilian had mixed fortunes during Wednesday's Copa del Rey 4-1 win over Cultural Leonesa at Barcelona's home stadium Camp Nou, as Malcom scored a goal before sustaining his injury, reports Efe news.

"Malcom out for 10 to 15 days with a sprained right ankle," the La Liga side tweeted.

The Brazilian was not the only casualty in the training that the Azulgrana squad made this morning at the Ciudad Deportiva Joan Gamper.

Malcom, along with defenders Samuel Umtiti and Nelson Semedo, midfielders Sergio Busquets, Rafinha and Ivan Rakitic, did not attend Thursday's training session, led by coach Ernesto Valverde.
