Barcelona’s injury situation, five days before El Clasico: Xavi should be worried

Barcelona are currently dealing with six injured players with just five days left until they face Real Madrid.

The Catalan team has several key players on the sidelines, but two are already certain that they will not play in El Clasico.

Xavi Hernandez has confirmed that Jules Kounde and captain Sergi Roberto will not be able to appear against Los Blancos.

Robert Lewandowski and Frenkie de Jong are half as likely, with the Polish striker said to be a possible replacement, reports Diario Sport.

The good news for Barcelona is that Pedri and Raphinha are well on their way back.

The pair are even reportedly set to feature against Shakhtar Donetsk on Wednesday night in the Champions League
