Barcelona have offered an update on Ronald Araujo after the Uruguay international was forced to miss the club’s La Liga clash with Granada on Saturday.
The center-back was named in the starting XI but had to pull out after picking up a problem in the warm-up and was replaced by Samuel Umtiti.
Araujo had further tests on Sunday and has been diagnosed with a hamstring strain.

The injury doesn’t appear too serious but it seems likely Barca may have to cope without Araujo against Real Sociedad in the Spanish Super Cup on Wednesday. Clement Lenglet will be available again after suspension along with Oscar Mingueza and Umtiti.
