Opinion: 2 Barça Players Who Could Replace Pedri Gonzalez In The Starting XI Before He Recovers

Pedri González is reportedly absent for 2-3 weeks because of a confirmation of an injury to his left leg's quadricytic muscle. The Spain's participation in critical matches against Granada, Cadiz, Levante, Benfica and Madrid at the Atletico would therefore not be possible.

The prospects of Barcelona winning a game are of course minimal to none without the youngster in Spain.

It is undeniable that the 18-year-old versatile midfielder is a prospective baller and a future centre-field teacher, meaning that he will be missed so badly till he gets back from the lineup. Given that it played in Europe's top 5 leagues more games last season than any other player, it can be stated that the injury is regular for him.

In the meantime, there are two young Barcelona players who can assume their places on the team, which is particularly essential when Ronald Koeman tries to turn his bad performance around. According to different reports, the Dutch manager currently faces pressure at Camp Nou in view of his performance against Bayern Munich on Tuesday.

While this is the case, the coach of the Blaugranas will require one of the two teens to help him complete the season in the club in 2021-2022. Many similarities exist between the players and Pedri González, therefore Ronold Koeman is forced to play them in the rest of his team.

The two alternatives are here

Puig Riqui

In Ronald Koeman's Start XI, based on his judgment of the midfield, the Barcelona academy graduate found himself dignified without getting unduly nostalgic about his accomplishments. Puig has the capability and ability to increase performance in the field in Barcelona in the absence of Pedri Gonzalez.

That indicates that in the next five-six games of the team, the 22-year-old Spaniard can replace his countryman at all tournaments within the next several weeks. In addition to its offensive and defensive ability, Riqui also enjoys creating opportunities while also defending an all around midfielder.

Gavi Pablo

The 17-year-old soccer player appeared against Bayern Munich on Tuesday in a few minutes and showed his employer confidence in his capacity to perform. That stated, if Ronald Koeman decides not to use the above player in the weeks ahead and replaces Pedri González in his lineup. According to rumors, playing with the captain of Barcelona and with the Dutchman would make him excellent since he would be able to settle under the recruiting head of the Bluagranas.

To be honest, he and Yusuf Demir performed fantastically throughout the pre-saison, and will certainly assist their midfield play. As players such as Fati, Dembele and Agüero are still unavailable, Koeman needs a dynamic intermediate player who can roam from one end to the other to subject the other team to attack.
