It had been reported previously that Pedri was fit and well and ready to start Sunday’s match at the Camp Nou.
However, both Sport and Mundo Deportivo are now reporting that Pedri’s had a bit of a setback and is likely to sit out the game.
Sport say Pedri wasn’t feeling great in training today and Barcelona see it as being “very difficult” for him to feature against Los Blancos.
MD reckon that Pedri didn’t complete today’s session because he noticed a bit of discomfort and is a “serious doubt” for the game.
Pedri had earlier been included in Spain’s squad for upcoming Euro qualifiers against Norway and Scotland and may now sit out those games too.

Javier Tebas can’t stop talking about Barcelona and has been at it again ahead of El Clasico.
La Liga’s president has been asked about the refereeing scandal currently engulfing the club and says he doesn’t think Barca bought officials but he does want an explanation.
“I don’t think Barça have bought referees, but they did pay Negreira when he was vice-president of the committee. And this is a fact,” Barça are a very important club for the league but hiding is not the way, an explanation must be given and Barça must give one to their socios,” he said.
