Xavi , barcelona Boss has faced a lot of squad challenges as Balde and Yamal Just returned ahead of bilbao fixture. However the youngsters snd loanee Joao Felix have stood out over the past few fixtures.
He still has to manage without the likes of Lewandowski, Pedri, Kounde, Raphinha, Frenkie de Jong, and Sergi Roberto for Sunday’s el classico match, leaving little room for optimism.
Regrettably, the Barca boss confirmed that Kounde and Roberto are certain to miss the upcoming clash against Madrid. He remained non-committal on the status of the other absent players, leaving their availability in doubt.
A major setback for the catalan side is the ongoing absence of Pedri, especially given previous speculation that he might be fit for the El Clasico showdown. His absence is significant because Pedri plays a crucial role as a playmaker in the team.
With less than 6 days until El Clasico and Barcelona trailing their arch-rivals Madrid by just one point at the top of the league, the increasing injuries in the squad are cause for concern.
Barcelona Boss faces a high-stakes challenge and mounting pressure as they strive to make a statement and claim the league’s top spot.
