Barcelona’s Samuel Umtiti out with knee injury

Samuel Umtiti has suffered a knee injury and will not feature against Athletic Club Bilbao on Saturday, say reports in Spain.

The Frenchman was already set to sit out the midweek Champions League trip to Tottenham Hotspur due to suspension, but now will also be unavailable against the Basque side.

Diario Sport say the former Olympique Lyonnais defender has suffered an injury to his left knee and did not train with his teammates on Friday morning.

Gerard Pique and Clement Lenglet are now set to start against Athletic Club, with the latter serving his one-game suspension ban as he missed out Wednesday’s loss at Leganes.
