Griezmann to miss Napoli match?

Antoine Griezmann has a thigh injury and could be in doubt for Barcelona’s Champions League clash with Napoli on August 8.

A statement from the Blaugrana this morning confirmed the “muscle injury in the quadriceps of his right leg. He is therefore not available for selection at the present time and the evolution of the injury will condition his availability.”

According to Mundo Deportivo, the injury is sufficiently serious to rule him out for the rest of the Liga season.

Barcelona host Napoli at Camp Nou on August 8, having drawn the first leg of their Round of 16 tie 1-1 at the Stadio San Paolo in February.

The winners of that tie will go on to face either Bayern Munich or Chelsea in the quarter-final.

Barca have real problems preparing for the Napoli match, as Arturo Vidal and Sergio Busquets are also suspended.

Samuel Umtiti, Jean-Clair Todibo, Frenkie de Jong and Ousmane Dembele are also carrying injuries.
