Fear in Barcelona that Pedri will be absent for a month, Ten Haach: “Champions League level”

The midfielder is injured and will not be in the rematch against Manchester United, where the Catalans will also miss the yellowed Gabi. Xavi on Rafinha’s behavior: “Not mad at him”

Barcelona has a reason or two for concern. The Catalans did manage to get out of the deficit tonight (Thursday) when they returned to 2:2 against Manchester United, in a game in which they had already taken the lead and then failed to stop Marcus Rashford, but in the coming month they will probably miss Pedri who was injured at the end of the first half. Barcelona officially announced that Pedri suffered an injury to his right thigh and that only after he undergoes a series of tests will it be possible to assess the severity of the injury, but the Spanish media is already reporting an initial assessment ranging from threeweeks per month. Pedri will not be in the team’s squad next week at Old Trafford in the second leg in which the winner will qualify for the last 16 in the Europa League and will probably also miss the first leg of the Copa del Rey semi-final against Real Madrid. In the league, he is expected to return to El Clasico, which will be held in about a month, but it is doubtful that he will be fit for games until then.” This is the character that is needed for this level”: Oskar Gloch showed sparks

If that is not enough, another player who will miss the rematch next week This is Gabi who received a yellow card and therefore Xavi is expected to have a headache when it comes to the link he will play with at Old Trafford next Thursday. Xavi at the end was asked about the anger of Rafinha, who scored and was replaced: “I understand himAnd it’s perfectly fine that he was angry after being replaced, but everything I do is for the good of the team. He doesn’t need to apologize, that’s an attitude I like. It was an outstanding game and I am very satisfied with the attitude of the players. We will go to Manchester next week with the aim of qualifying for the next stage.” On the other hand, Marcus Rashford scored his 14th goal in the 16 games that the Red Devils have appeared in in all competitions since returning from the World Cup and at the end his coach Eric ten Haag praised him: “He is in great shape And he deserves all the credit, but the whole team worked and played great today. It was a very good performance of ours. We saw two offensive teams that displayed ability at a very high level, more so than in league gamesthe champions It ended 2:2 and we know we’ll have to complete the task at Old Trafford in a game I’m sure everyone will want to watch.”
