Ibrahimovic out for week with thigh strain

MADRID - Barcelona striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic strained a thigh muscle in Saturday's 4-2 la Liga win over Real Mallorca and will be out of action for about a week, Barca said on their website.

The Sweden international pulled up after winning the penalty that Lionel Messi converted for Barca's fourth and will miss Tuesday's King's Cup last 32 second leg against third-tier Cultural Leonesa, the club said.

There are no la Liga matches next weekend because of a round of international friendlies.
