Barcelona defender Ronald Araujo suffers hamstring injury

Barcelona defender Ronald Araujo has suffered a hamstring injury.

Barca has confirmed the setback suffered in victory at Champions League opponents Juventus.

The club did not specify a time period but these type of injuries usually take at least two weeks to fix, so he is likely to be out until the next international break. Those are games against Alaves and Betis in La Liga and Dinamo Kiev in the Champions League.

He may be back in the squad for the clash with Atletico Madrid at the Wanda Metropolitano on November 21.

Araujo was filling in for the suspended Gerard Pique. He is the only alternative to the Catalan and Frenchman Clement Lenglet, with Samuel Umtiti out injured.
