Umtiti out injured for Atlético match
Barcelona defender Samuel Umtiti will miss the Liga Santander game against Atlético Madrid at the Camp Nou on Wednesday evening (kick-off 22:00 CEST).
Umtiti strains knee ligament
Umtiti was injured in training and won't be in the squad for Wednesday's game: the defender has strained a ligament in his left knee.
Mascherano to cover
Umtiti joined Barcelona this summer from Olympique Lyon, and has played five matches for Luis Enrique's side, starting all of them. He was expected to start against Atleti in the centre of defence with Piqué. Mascherano, who had a torrid time against Leganés on Saturday, is likely to cover for him.
