Barcelona have confirmed that Ronald Araujo suffered a hamstring injury during Uruguay 0-3 loss to Argentina on Sunday.
The defender will not take part in Uruguay’s remaining matches in the international break and will return to Barcelona immediately.
The club’s medical team will assess his injury after his return and then start treatment.
According to AS, Araujo will be out of action for around 15 days.
If that’s true, then the defender could miss as many as 4 games for Barca – including the El Clasico on 24 October.
