Barcelona confirmed on Wednesday that Samuel Umtiti will miss their Champions League clash with PSV Eindhoven after he “felt discomfort in his left knee” during training yesterday.

The France international is only just back from injury and made his first start in almost two months against Atletico Madrid on Saturday.

The latest update is a bit worrying considering his recent injury record, and we’ll have to hope it’s not too serious.

Clement Lenglet will fill in for Umtiti against PSV. The summer signing has started three of Barcelona’s four Champions League games so far alongside Gerard Pique.
