We’ve got a couple of injury updates for you here on Friday. The first update is on Jordi Alba. The full-back was injured during Barcelona’s 3-0 loss in the Champions League to Bayern Munich and hasn’t played since.

Alba has been included in Ronald Koeman’s squad list for the big match this weekend against Atletico Madrid. Pedri on the other hand won’t be ready in time after coming off against Benfica with what we found out to be a left thigh injury.

The midfielder went straight back into the team after returning from injury but has apparently suffered a relapse and has also pulled out of the Spain squad for the Nations League Final Four.

According to Diario AS, it looks like Pedri was rushed back and will now miss another 2-3 weeks. The report also reckons the teenager may not be back until the Clasico on October 24 with Barca worried he could relapse again.
