Dembele injured in first Barca league start

DEMBELE INJURED IN FIRST BARCA LEAGUE START

Ousmane Dembele's full La Liga debut with Barcelona following a 105 million euro ($125 million) move from Borussia Dortmund lasted just 29 minutes as the Frenchman pulled up with a suspected hamstring injury.

Dembele, who provided an assist on his fist Barca appearance as a substitute in a 5-0 thrashing of Espanyol last weekend, was replaced by Gerard Deulofeu.

The 20-year-old missed most of pre-season as he went on strike from training at Dortmund in an attempt to force through his move to the Camp Nou.
