Barcelona don’t want to take risks with injuries. Pedri, after his relapse, is a doubt for the Clasico.
He hurt his left quadriceps against Benfica and did not train on Monday with his team-mates, or on Tuesday. He will stay on the margins until the staff are convinced he is over his problem.
The former Las Palmas player will not feature on Sunday, or against Dinamo Kiev most likely. Maximum caution.
The objective is the Clasico but we will have to see if he makes it.
One player who will be back against Benfica is Kun Aguero. Dembele will have to wait a little longer. There’s a chance that after this break, Ansu Fati will be able to start.
