Barcelona have suffered yet another injury blow with centre-back Clement Lenglet ruled out of Saturday’s clash with Leganes due to a calf problem.

The defender played 90 minutes of both of France’s Euro 2020 qualifiers against Albania and Moldova but has been “ruled with a calf injury picked up on international duty.”

Lenglet’s absence means it’s likely that Samuel Umtiti will partner Gerard Pique in the centre of defence, although Jean-Clair Todibo and Ronald Araujo are also in the squad.

Barcelona are already without Sergi Roberto due to suspension, while Nelson Semedo and Jordi Alba are also missing because of injury.
