Bad news for Barcelona before ‘El Clasico’. The Barcelona coach will play without two of his first-choice players to face Real Madrid on Sunday.
The former Dutch national team coach had hoped to be able to bring back his injured players to a crucial La Liga game. However, according to ‘Sport’, neither Pedri nor Ronald Araujo will be found.
Barcelona’s coaching staff do not want to risk the Tenerife player. On Wednesday, Pedri Gonzales has yet to touch the ball and they prefer to be cautious before returning to his injury.
In fact, Pedri has no doubts about the match against Rayo Vallecano next Wednesday, so the day they are likely to see the midfielder again will be the 30th of October against Alaves.
Ronald Araujo will not be available for Sunday’s ‘El Clasico’ either. The Uruguay international, who was injured by the national team, still have muscle problems and was unable to perform on the field.
Ronald Koeman is still optimistic about Ousmane Dembele, according to ‘AS’. The Frenchman has little chance of playing a role, even though he is taking office.
Ronald Koeman knows that a game against Real Madrid is not just another game, but one that can set the future not only for the team but for him.
