Spain international Pedri will miss the game against Real Madrid on Sunday.
Bad news for the FC Barcelona, while several players are absent for this Wednesday’s match against Dynamo Kiev, another package has just been announced for the Clasico on Sunday against the Real Madrid from Karim Benzema. According to information from Sport, Pedri, already absent since the end of September due to a quadriceps injury during the defeat of his family (3-0) on the lawn of Benfica end of September, should miss this appointment.
The 18-year-old Spanish midfielder is undoubtedly starting to pay for the sequence of matches since last season. He had played 52 games in all competitions with the club Blaugrana, before playing the whole of the Euro with Spain (including 3 extra-time games) and taking part in the 6 games of the Roja at the Tokyo Olympics (2 overtime), bringing his total of games to 64 in just one year.

The club does not wish to take any risks and has not yet announced a return date for its player. On the Madrid side, the list of potential absentees is still as long: Bale, Hazard, Isco, Carvajal, Jovic and Ceballos were away from Donetsk on Tuesday night, during Real’s 5-0 victory. Carlo Ancelotti should still be able to count on his two offensive weapons, Benzema and Vinicius, very visible during this match and authors of 18 goals and 13 assists between them this season.
