Coutinho was injured during a match against Eibar in the 16th round of the Spanish League last Tuesday.
The Brazilian star, who entered the pitch in the 66th minute in place of the Bosnian Miralem Pjanic, was unable to complete the match due to an injury he suffered in stoppage time from the match, which ended in a 1-1 positive draw.
It is noteworthy that Coutinho participated this season with Barcelona in 14 games in various competitions, during which he scored three goals and made two assists.
