Their star midfielder Pedri, who had been out for six games due to a hamstring injury sustained against Manchester United in mid-February, has resumed training with the group.

Pedri's absence had a significant impact on Barcelona's performance, resulting in a noticeable drop in their La Liga win percentage and contributing to their exit from the Europa League. Without him, they struggled to maintain possession, as was evident in their previous El Clasico match.
However, with Pedri back in training, there is hope that he will return for their crucial game against Real Madrid on Sunday, which could prove decisive as Los Blancos are trailing Barcelona by nine points. The only absence for Barcelona in this match is Ousmane Dembele if Pedri does indeed make a comeback.
