Barcelona defender Samuel Umtiti out for 2 weeks

Barcelona defender Samuel Umtiti has been ruled out for two weeks due to a knee injury.

Umtiti will not play on Wednesday against Atletico Madrid and is also not expected to be back for the games against Sporting Gijon, Borussia Monchengladbach and Celta Vigo.

"Defender Umtiti suffered an internal ligament strain on his left knee during Tuesday morning's training session," read a Barcelona statement.

"Therefore, the Frenchman will miss the match against Atletico Madrid at Camp Nou. The progression of his injury will determine exactly how long he will be out for."
