Barcelona have reportedly been hit with a fresh injury blow as Pedri has suffered a problem in training and will miss the final games of the year.

The midfielder is out of tomorrow’s La Liga clash with Almeria and will also miss the trip to the United States for a friendly with Club America, according to multiple reports.

There’s not too much detail offered on Pedri’s latest injury. Mundo Deportivo claim it’s “muscle discomfort” and that Barca don’t want to take any risks given his history.

Sport have a similar theory and say he’ll have more tests in the next hours to determine the severity of the problem.

If Pedri’s absence is confirmed it will leave Xavi short of midfield options for the clash against La Liga’s bottom side.

Gavi is also obviously out because of injury, while Frenkie de Jong will also miss the game because of suspension.
