Sevilla’s Nasri to miss two matches due to injury

Seville (Spain), Nov 1 (IANS) Sevilla midfielder Samir Nasri will miss the Spanish football club’s Champions League tie against Dinamo Zagreb on Wednesday and La Liga clash against Barcelona on Sunday due to an injury on his left leg.

The 29-yer-old Frenchman sustained the injury during Saturday’s La Liga match against Sporting Gijon. And the MRI scan, which the on-loan Manchester City player underwent on Monday, showed that he will have to be sidelined for at least a week.

“Tests reveal Samir Nasri has suffered damage to his left hamstring,” the club said in a statement on Monday. “He will undergo further tests to determine how long he will be out.”

French Wissam Ben Yedder, who also had to leave the field during Gijon match due to injury, is getting better.
