Barcelona coach Xavi has suffered an injury blow ahead of his debut against Espanyol.
Pedri has suffered an injury relapse, and may not be available for selection until 2022.
Barcelona had been warned over their continued use of a young player who was still growing into his body, as well as the Spanish Olympic team insisting he go with them to the games, and it appears as though that cumulative fatigue is now catching up with the prodigious talent.
Pedri is officially suffering with a relapse in his left thigh injury, and according to Esport3, he will be out of action for a month.
This will put him back off track in terms of his return, having already missed most of the current campaign with Barcelona.
A month out would see Pedri likely not be fit for match action until January, with the Supercopa de Espana perhaps being eyed as a date for his return to competitive action.
