Uruguayan centre back was replaced during Wednesday's game with Juventus
Test on Friday have revealed that Ronald Araujo has a femoral biceps (hamstring) injury in his right leg and his availability will now depend on how the injury develops.
Araujo was unable to complete the game at the Juventus Stadium, which he started due to Gerard Piqué being suspended after receiving a red card against Ferencváros. The Uruguayan was substituted at half-time by Sergio Busquets after sensing pain, meaning Ronald Koeman had to move Frenkie de Jong back into the middle of defence alongside Clément Lenglet. It wasn’t an entirely new situation for the Dutchman, who has played at centre back for Ajax and Holland in the past, curiously also underneath Koeman.
In this first season as part of the senior team, Araujo has played four games, two in La Liga and two in the Champions League.
