Barcelona will have to cope without defender Clement Lenglet for next week’s La Liga clash at Real Mallorca due to suspension.

The centre-back picked up his fifth yellow card of the season against Real Sociedad that means an automatic one-match ban for the Frenchman.

Lenglet went into the book after just 16 minutes at the Camp Nou for a late sliding challenge on Portu.

The defender’s suspension means Samuel Umtiti is likely to replace him in the starting XI for the game against the relegation-threatened side.

Barca then face Napoli in the second leg of their Champions League last 16 tie four days later.
