Barcelona have been dealt a blow after Samuel Umtiti suffered a calf injury in training session.

Ahead of the potential resumption of La Liga after the coronavirus pandemic, the majority of the Barcelona squad have began to up their fitness levels.

However, in the second day back in action, Umtiti pulled up with a calf problem, which will prevent him from working with the rest of the group.

In a statement on social media, the Spanish giants said: "Samuel Umtiti has a right calf injury. His progress will determine his availability for the coming workouts."

Players in Spain are continuing to adhere to social distancing, meaning that three separate pitches were in use on Saturday.
