Alba was replaced by France’s Lucas Digne after 10 minutes, while Jeremy Mathieu came on for Pique on 39 minutes, but was later sent-off for a second bookable offence.

“Piqué has been diagnosed with sprained ligaments in his right ankle and is expected to be out for around three weeks,” Barcelona said.

Jordi Alba has an elongation in the femoral biceps of the left leg, and the approximate time on the sidelines will be two weeks.

Pique will not be available till 10th of November. Jordi Alba, meanwhile, could be back for the trip to Sevilla but is surely going to miss the Champions League trip to the Etihad Stadium.
