Antoine Griezmann is expected to miss at least three weeks due to the quadriceps injury he picked up against Real Valladolid on Saturday.

The Frenchman went off at half-time of the 1-0 win and Barcelona subsequently confirmed he’s set for a spell on the sidelines.

AS are reporting that Griezmann will miss “a minimum of three weeks” which means he should just about be fit in time for the Napoli game on August 8.

Barca will certainly want him for that game as Martin Braithwaite is ineligible, while both Sergio Busquets and Arturo Vidal are suspended for the second leg at the Camp Nou.

Mundo Deportivo have also been reporting about Griezmann’s injury and claim he had the same injury eight years ago while at Real Sociedad and was back in three weeks.
