Barcelona will be without midfielder Arthur for Saturday’s La Liga clash with Real Sociedad at the Camp Nou due to an ankle injury.

The Brazilian missed training on Friday and has not been included in Quique Setien’s 18-man squad for the game.

The club have offered an update on his condition:

“Brazilian midfielder Arthur Melo has an ankle problem and is undergoing treatment with Dr.Ramon Cugat’s team and the player’s recovery will dictate his return.”

Setien was asked about Arthur in his pre-match press conference and said the club do not know yet how long he’ll be out for. Let’s hope he’s back soon.
