Following a vital victory over Seville with two clean goals in the 25th round of the Spanish League, Barcelona confirmed the medical diagnosis of its young star, Pedri Gonzales. Pedri has a muscle fracture in his lower left leg, according to Barcelona’s official medical release, and he will undergo new scans tomorrow to assess the seriousness of the injury.
While Barcelona has not confirmed how long Pedri will be out, the Spanish newspaper AS reports that the injury will hold the youngster out for two to three weeks, confirming his absence from the King’s Cup semi-final second leg against Seville on Wednesday, as well as the return match. On March 10, they will face Paris Saint-Germain in the UEFA Champions League Round of 16.
Pedri will also miss at least two La Liga matches, against Osasuna and Huesca, before returning on March 21 against Real Sociedad.
As a consequence, Pedri joins Ansu Fati, Philip Coutinho, and Miralem Pjanic on Barcelona’s disabled list, although the Catalan club has yet to decide whether Ronald Araujo will be fit for the Sevilla match following his injury this evening.
Barcelona will face Seville in the second leg of the Copa del Rey semi-final round at the Camp nou stadium on Wednesday, and thanks to its 2-0 loss in Ramon Sanchez Pizjón, Barca will need to score 3-0 to progress to the final.
