BARCELONA, Spain (AP) - Barcelona says midfielder Sergi Roberto will miss the Champions League match against Ajax because of a right leg injury.

The club says the 22-year-old Roberto picked up a muscle strain and will be sidelined until his condition improves. The club did not say when that would be.

Midfielder Andres Iniesta and defenders Jeremy Mathieu and Thomas Vermaelen are also injured for Barcelona, which has lost two straight matches in the Spanish league.

Barcelona is second in Group F with six points, one less than Paris Saint-Germain. Ajax is in third place with two points, while APOEL Nicosia has one.
