‘May lose up to 8G’… Injured genius MF expected to leave for 3-4 weeks
Pedri breakaway is a huge lethal blow for Barcelona.
Barcelona drew 2-2 with Manchester United in the first leg of the 2022-23 season European Football Association (UEFA) Europa League (UEL) round of 16 playoff held at Camp Nou in Barcelona, Spain at 2:45 am (Korean time) on the 17th. Reaped. Now, the two teams will play the second leg at Old Trafford, Manchester United’s home ground, on the 24th.
Barcelona, which had taken the lead with Marcos Alonso’s opening goal, conceded two runs amid defensive uncertainty and allowed a turnaround. Barcelona, which started to change with Ansu Fati, Alejandro Balde and Andreas Christensen, equalized with a Rafinha goal in the 31st minute of the second half. Ferran Torres was added to launch a last-minute offensive, but there was no goal. In the end, the game ended 2-2. It was painful for Barcelona to draw with two goals conceded at home.
There was another bad thing. It was Pedri’s injury. Fedry, who suffered from intensive checks, complained of pain around the 38th minute of the first half and collapsed on the ground and demanded a replacement. After the medics came in, a change was made, Pedri was removed and Sergi Roberto was brought in. Pedri’s injury was more serious than he thought. Barcelona said after the game: “Pedri suffered an injury to his right thigh.” Spain’As’ said, “I can miss up to four weeks.”
Pedri is the heart of Barcelona’s midfield. Pedri, a genius midfielder born in 2002, is a player who inspires Barcelona’s midfield with his tremendous amount of activity and mobility. He has good movement to get out of tight spaces and has a very good ability to keep spaces, which greatly contributes to securing possession. He is good at creating opportunities and has good stamina. He received the Golden Boy in 2021 and confirmed that he is the best prospect in his age group. 슬롯사이트
Fedry, who developed more as the season progressed, became an indispensable player in Barcelona. It would be a huge blow for Pedri to miss four weeks. He could miss at least 5 games and a maximum of 8 games if he does as expected. He is also expected to miss the second leg against Manchester United and the first leg of the Copa del Rey semi-final against Real Madrid. Depending on the speed of his recovery, the timing of his return may vary.
With Pedri missing, Barcelona’s midfield competitiveness has greatly diminished. Barcelona, which was hit by Sergio Busquets’ injury, cannot play in the second leg against Man Utd due to accumulated warnings to Pablo Gavi. Coach Xavi Hernandez had a lot of trouble with the composition of the midfield.
