Against PSV is there for Barcelona, not as much on the game, the Catalan club is already sure of qualification for the eighth finals of the Champions League. Umtiti’s compatriot Clément Lenglet replaces the luckless central defender in the basiselftal. Barcelona has not yet communicated about the severity of the injury and how long the defender will need to recover.
By the persistent knee injury was Umtiti already two months outside of battle, from september to november, and he also had to default for the last two international matches of the France.
Last Saturday celebrated the French defender yet his return to the first team of Barcelona against Atlético Madrid, where he spent the 90 minutes (1-1).
For Barcelona, which means the injury of Umtiti headaches for coach Ernesto Valverde. In addition to Umtiti may, Valverde also, do not rely on our fellow countryman Thomas Vermaelen.
