Against Eintracht Frankfurt on Thursday, Barca lost a lot. Deprived of their ambition to add the only major trophy to their list, which is still lacking, the Europa League, FC Barcelona could also have shed some feathers in passing on the European scene.

Replaced by Frankie de Jong at halftime against the Germans (2-3 loss), Pedri injured his partner in the thigh. In the evening, Barca revealed that Pedri was suffering from “discomfort in the left hamstring”. The Spanish prodigy will now have to undergo additional medical examinations to determine the nature of his injury and the duration of his unavailability.

Already long absent at the start of this season, Pedri missed 22 games between September 2021 and January 2022, according to Transfermark.
