Barcelona said tests confirmed the injury but did not elaborate on its extent, saying only that the goalkeeper's availability for the rest of the week will depend on the healing process.

If Bravo, 32, can't play in the match at the Vicente Calderon Stadium in Madrid, he would likely be replaced by German goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen.

Defending champion Barcelona and Atletico have won their first two matches to start the Spanish league season.

Barcelona coach Luis Enrique also won't be able to count on injured defender Dani Alves.
