Barcelona is having a very important problem this season with the infirmary, just this season which is when it has least active to replace the fundamental pieces.
Ronald Koeman’s team is lacking in determination in the final meters, so let’s start by talking about the injured forwards:
The Dane suffered a knee injury about a month ago that will keep him off the pitch until the end of December. He was very unlucky because his start to the season was brilliant, and that is because he was Barça’s best in the match against Real Sociedad with which the league started.
The date for his return was set for next Saturday, October 16, but yesterday he was able to play a friendly against Cornellá in which he managed to score a goal. It is very possible that the call for the game this weekend against Valencia will enter, but his ownership is more than complicated.
The Frenchman already touches the ball and has trained on the pitch, but his return is scheduled for October 20, that is, his return to the pitch should take place in the match between Barça and Real Madrid next day 24.
Two other essential players of the team are injured but their return is yet to be determined:
He has surely been the best Barça footballer in the last two months. The Uruguayan center-back has shown that he is not a starter, but a very starter in this Ronald Koeman team. He was injured in a match with Uruguay and we still do not know the extent of his loss.
Finally we find Pedri, who was finally affected by the incredible load of matches that he accumulated behind his back. His return will take place as soon as possible, but today we cannot risk sketching any date.
