Ansu Fati, Sergio Aguero, Sergino Dest, Martin Braithwaite and Ousmane Dembele were the Blaugrana's injured players for the game who could not accompany the team and now two more players have been added to the list and will miss their next La Liga match.

Barca's statement reads:

"The first-team player Pedri has a quadriceps muscle injury in his left thigh. The player is unavailable for selection and his recovery will dictate his return."

Alba suffered an injury during the game and was substituted by Balde Martinez in the 74th minute.

The statement continued:

"Tests carried out on Wednesday morning on the first-team player Jordi Alba show that he has a hamstring injury in his right thigh.

"The player is unavailable for selection and his recovery will dictate his return."

Barca will face Granada in their next match, and the absence of these two influential players will be a severe blow to them.
