Barcelona’s lineup to face Real Sociedad: Pedri’s return and De Jong’s absence

Barcelona’s head coach, Xavi Hernandez, has unveiled the team’s lineup for their upcoming Spanish League clash against Real Sociedad.

On Saturday, Barcelona will welcome Real Sociedad to their home ground in what promises to be an intriguing encounter in the 12th round of the Spanish League. The Catalan club’s roster sees the eagerly awaited return of midfielder Pedri Gonzalez, who has been sidelined for nearly 70 days due to injury. Reports from last evening confirmed that Pedri has been given the green light by the team’s medical staff to resume playing, following a muscle injury sustained on August 24.

Pedri’s absence has seen him miss out on participating in the last 12 matches played by Barcelona across various competitions. Meanwhile, fellow midfielder Frenkie de Jong continues to be unavailable due to an injury. Barcelona currently occupies the fourth spot in the Spanish League standings, amassing 24 points, trailing behind Real Sociedad by a margin of 5 points.

The return of Pedri to the squad is expected to inject renewed energy and creativity into Barcelona’s midfield, as they aim to secure a victory and close the gap on their rivals in the league standings.
