Samuel Umtiti was back in training on Thursday as the club prepare for Saturday’s La Liga clash with Getafe.

The Frenchman missed Wednesday’s session, reportedly due to knee pain, which sparked fears he may miss the weekend’s encounter.

However, Umtiti was back with the group and is expected to feature alongside Gerard Pique in defence at the Camp Nou. Clement Lenglet will miss the game through suspension.

Barca B’s Ronaldo Araujo is also an option if Setien is unwilling to risk Umtiti. The 20-year-old has trained with the first team this week along with Chumi.

Nelson Semedo did specific work on Thursday which suggests he might be a doubt for Saturday’s clash. The Portugal international is suffering from tonsillitis.
