Barcelona has confirmed the injury to Clement Lenglet ahead of the Champions League clash against Napoli next month.
The La Liga giants confirmed that Lenglet has picked up a groin injury and is set to undergo treatment on the problem.
The former Sevilla defender was forced off during the 5-0 win against Alaves and will sit out training for the next couple of days.
Here’s the official word:

Barcelona resumed training on Monday morning and will rest a bit before the squad begin their training for the match against Napoli on August 8.
Samuel Umtiti could remain unfit for the clash against Serie A team and the club will want Lenglet fit for the reverse fixture against Gennaro Gattuso’s men.
The injury to both Umtiti and Lenglet would leave Gerard Pique and Ronald Araujo as the only other fit senior centre-backs options for the Camp Nou outfit ahead of the couch tie against Napoli.
