Barcelona’s injury problems have worsened after defender Hector Bellerin suffered a calf problem in training on Tuesday.

The club said in a statement that they will look into the injury on Wednesday and Bellerin will potentially join several other players on the sidelines.

During the international break, Barcelona lost Ronald Araujo, Jules Kunde, Memphis Depay and Frenkie de Jong to hip and hamstring injuries.

Uruguayan defender Araujo faces his longest absence since undergoing surgery on Wednesday for a torn thigh muscle. He could miss the World Cup and could miss up to three months.

Bellerin joined Arsenal in the summer on a one-year contract and is the club’s only natural right-back. If he misses Saturday’s game against Mallorca due to injury, then Barça may not have enough cover.

Injured duo Kunde and Araujo have been used frequently there this season, while reworked midfielder Sergi Roberto is also an option, but doesn’t quite fit himself.
