Griezmann set to miss Osasuna LaLiga clash on Thursday

The 2018 World Cup winner, a 120-million-euro signing from Atlético Madrid last year, is likely to miss Thursday's league match against Osasuna at Camp Nou.

Griezmann has scored just nine goals in 35 league appearances during a difficult first season with Barça.

He was dropped from the starting line-up by coach Quique Setién for the 2-2 draws with Celta Vigo and Atleti last month but made a goalscoring return in the 4-1 win over Villarreal on 5 July.
