Barcelona defender Thomas Vermaelen injured again?

Barcelona risk going without Thomas Vermaelen after the defender left Belgium’s match against Switzerland with an suspected injury.

Mundo Deportivo reports Vermaelen lasted just 73 minutes of Belgium’s 2-1 Nations League win against Switzerland on Friday.

The newspaper speculates the 32-year-old picked up a ‘muscle problem’ as he asked to be changed, fearing it could be another hamstring injury.

Barca are already without Samuel Umtiti until February, leaving only Gerard Pique and Clement Lenglet at their disposal if tests rule out the former Arsenal stopper.
