Samuel Umtiti as he leaves the field against Celta | MIGUEL RUIZ - FCB

The draw against Celta brought some bad news for Barça in the form of injury. Tests carried out have confirmed that Samuel Umtiti has a hamstring injury in his right leg and he is expected to be out for around 8 weeks.

The French defender was injured in the 70th minute when he was chasing Iago Aspas in the build up to Celta’s second goal. Umtiti will now miss the rest of 2017 and January of next year.
