Barcelona defender Samuel Umtiti picked up a booking in Sunday’s La Liga clash with Espanyol which means he will miss the visit of Getafe next weekend.

The booking was his fifth of the season which means an automatic one-match ban for the France international, he was booked for dissent.

The booking does mean we could finally see a start for new signing Yerry Mina. Thomas Vermaelen is still out injured and it’s not clear when he will return to action.

Valverde does have other options, he could drop Sergio Busquets into defence, move Lucas Digne into the middle or even call up David Costas from the B team.

However, a start for Mina looks the most likely option and it will be great to see the new arrival finally get some action.
