Barcelona confirmed on Thuesday that Pedri will miss the team’s final game of the season on Saturday at Eibar as he’s off on holiday.

It was rumored earlier in the week that Pedri would be allowed to go on holiday early amid fears the youngster’s suffering from burnout.

Pedri has played 52 games in his first season at Barcelona and is expected to be included in Luis Enrique’s Spain squad for the 2020 Euros.

The teenager’s absence means Ronald Koeman will have to make changes to his midfield against Eibar which could be good news for Ilaix Moriba and Riqui Puig.

Moriba started in place of the suspended Frenkie de Jong against Celta and could get the nod again, while Puig came on for Pedri at half-time last time out and could make just his third La Liga start of the season.
