Barcelona’s injury problems pile on as Pedri gets injured in training

Barcelona can’t seem to catch a break as far as injuries go, as they lose midfield star Pedri to a muscle injury.

A muscle injury in training has forced Barcelona midfielder Pedri to spend a brief period on the sidelines.

The 21-year-old Spain international, who has initiated eight LaLiga games this season, will certainly be absent from the champions’ upcoming match against bottom side Almeria on Wednesday.

An update from the club read: “First-team player Pedri got a knock in training and has a slight muscle injury. He is ruled out of selection and his recovery will determine his return.”

Details on Pedri’s recent injury are scant. Mundo Deportivo reports it as “muscle discomfort,” and Barca is exercising caution due to his injury history. Sport shares a similar perspective. They have mentioned that additional tests will be conducted in the coming hours to ascertain the extent of the issue.

Gavi is sidelined due to injury, and Frenkie de Jong will be absent from the game due to suspension.
