Barcelona continues to struggle with the large number of injured players. In place of Ousmane Dembele, Andreas Christensen, and Pedri, who are all out, Frenkie de Jong is the final name on the list.
Frenkie will be absent from El Clasico, according to journalist Helena Condis, as both teams compete to advance to the Copa del Rey final. On Tuesday, the number 21 did not show up for practice.
The Barcelona coach will also address the media on Tuesday at around 13:00 before Real Madrid visit the Camp Nou. There will be discussion about Frenkie de Jong, and his manager is the best person to confirm or deny whether he will be out or not.
Barcelona continues to wait for Pedri. Even though Xavi acknowledged that he isn’t fully healthy, he is unsure of if he will be called up for El Clasico. Ousmane Dembele and Andreas Christensen are the only ones who are unquestionably out.
Although ‘AS‘ had already stated that his absence was all but certain, they left open the possibility that, given the circumstances, he might be able to return in time.
