Luis Suarez will miss between 10 to 15 days after spraining his ankle during Barcelona’s 4-1 La Liga win over Real Betis on Sunday.

The Uruguay striker will miss two friendly matches with his country in China, but likely be fit to face Espanyol at the end of the March when domestic football resumes.

“Tests confirm that the player has a sprain in his right ankle and will be out for between 10 to 15 days,” said Barcelona in a statement on Monday.

Suarez scored a brilliant goal and set up another for Lionel Messi with a backheel as Barcelona moved 10 points clear at the top of the table.
