Ronald Araujo has added to Barcelona’s defensive problems ahead of their Champions League tie with Napoli.

The centre-back hobbled off during Sunday’s promotion playoff defeat to Sabadell and looked pretty distraught afterwards on the bench.

It’s not clear yet how serious the injury is but Barca will be concerned, particularly as they already have a few injuries at the back.

Clement Lenglet is currently having treatment on a groin problem, while Samuel Umtiti is out again with a knee problem and it’s not clear when he’ll be back.

Napoli are due to arrive at the Camp Nou in just under two weeks, meaning Quique Setien will be hoping Araujo and Lenglet can both recover quickly.
