FC Barcelona may be missing one of their starting defenders as they attempt to continue their long unbeaten run against Villarreal. Samuel Umtiti did not train today due to pain in his left knee.

The match has no significance in the league for the Blaugrana, as Barcelona are already La Liga champions. However, Barça are attempting to both continue their record-breaking unbeaten run and become the first club to finish a season unbeaten in the league since the league moved to 38 games.

Thomas Vermaelen would be the favorite to substitute Umtiti in the middle of defense. Other possibilities would include Lucas Digne and Yerry Mina.
