Barcelona confirmed on Monday that Clement Lenglet has picked up a groin injury and is set to undergo treatment on the problem.

The Frenchman centre-back was forced off during Barca’s 5-0 win over Alaves and will sit out training for the next couple of days.

Here’s the official word:

Barca are training today and tomorrow and will then have a rest before beginning their preparations for the visit of Napoli on August 8.

The club will want Lenglet fit for the last-16 clash as Samuel Umtiti looks unlikely to make it, leaving Gerard Pique and Ronald Araujo as the only other fit senior centre-backs.
