Barcelona’s injury problems deepen with Pedri and Alba ruled out

Loading...

Alba
was
taken
off
in
the
74th
minute
of
Tuesday’s
Champions
League
contest
with
a
hamstring
issue,
while
Pedri
played
a
full
part
on
his
return
to
action
following
a
three-week
rest.

Barca
announced
on
their
official
website
on
Wednesday
that
Pedri
is
suffering
with
a
thigh
problem
and
has
joined
Alba
in
the
treatment
room
ahead
of
Monday’s
LaLiga
clash
with
Granada.

No
timeline
has
been
given
for
both
players’ return
to
action.

“The
first
team
player
Pedri
has
a
quadriceps
muscle
injury
in
his
left
thigh,”
Barca
revealed.
“The
player
is
unavailable
for
selection
and
his
recovery
will
dictate
his
return.

“Tests
carried
out
on
Wednesday
morning
on
the
first
team
player
Jordi
Alba
show
that
he
has
a
hamstring
injury
in
his
right
thigh.

“The
player
is
unavailable
for
selection
and
his
recovery
will
dictate
his
return.”

Barca’s
injury
issues
are
piling
up
ahead
of
a
busy
spell
of
five
games
in
a
fortnight,
including
a
huge
clash
with
LaLiga
champions
Atletico
Madrid
early
next
month.

Martin
Braithwaite
is
expected
to
miss
the
rest
of
2021
after
undergoing
knee
surgery,
while
fellow
attackers
Sergio
Aguero,
Ousmane
Dembele
and
Ansu
Fati
are
also
out
of
action.

According
to
Spanish
outlet
Marca,
Barca
boss
Ronald
Koeman
feels
the
club’s
medical
department
are
partly
to
blame
for
the
growing
list
of
absentees.

The
loss
of
Alba
will
leave
a
big
void
to
be
filled
in
the
troublesome
area
of
left-back,
with
academy
product
Alejandro
Balde
coming
on
for
his
senior
debut
in
the
heavy
defeat
to
Bayern.

Pedri
has
also
been
a
regular
under
Koeman
over
the
past
13
months,
making
55
appearances
in
all
competitions
since
the
start
of
last
season

only
Youssef
En-Nesyri
(57)
and
Manu
Trigueros
(59)
have
been
used
more
often
among
LaLiga
clubs.
