Araujo is doubtful for Napoli due to an overload in the soleus

The Barcelona centre-back Ronald Araujowho retired at halftime game this Sunday against Espanyol due to physical discomfort, suffers from overload in the soleus of the left leg and its presence is doubtful against Napolithis Thursday.

Araujo was replaced by Eric García, who was returning to the team Xavi Hernandez after five weeks of inactivity due to injury.

The Barça club confirmed this Monday the injury of the Uruguayan center-back, but did not determine any leave period and informed that it will depend on the evolution it presents.

Araujo joins the extensive casualty list in this position. The French Clement Lenglet and Samuel Umtiti, who will also be absent against Valencia next Sunday, are also not available against Napoli (Europa League) due to injury. Gerard Piqué, expelled in the derby, will not play in Valencia either, but is available in the European match along with Eric García and Óscar Mingueza. The question is whether Araujo will be recovered for the Mestalla game.
