The French defender has started in just one match this season – the league victory at Granada – and had been widely anticipated to be involved in the cup trip to the Blaugrana’s Catalan neighbours.
Clement Lenglet starts alongside Ronald Araujo for Ronald Koeman’s side with Oscar Mingueza also involved – despite all three defenders playing more minutes than Umtiti this season for the side.
France international Umtiti has not played in successive games for the Blaugrana since February.
Umtiti was heavily linked with an exit from Barcelona this summer due to his high wage and lack of first-team opportunities, but he has stayed at the club for now.
The Cameroon-born defender has suffered from multiple injuries over the past few seasons, curtailing his development at the club.
