After Pedri, Barcelona set to be without key defender Ronald Araujo

Additionally, Barcelona will also start the season without Pedri

Barcelona faced a major blow ahead of their new season with key defender Ronald Araujo set to miss the start of it. In the 33rd minute of the Uruguay-Brazil quarter-final match at the Copa America 2024, Uruguay’s coach Marcelo Bielsa was forced to make a substitution. Araujo, injured, was replaced by Jose Maria Gimenez. Despite missing his penalty attempt, Gimenez’s miss did not prevent Uruguay from securing a victory.

How long will Ronald Araujo’s injury last?

Araujo’s injury was significant enough to suggest a prolonged rest, impacting Barcelona’s pre-season preparations. The diagnosis confirmed he would be out for six weeks, potentially sidelining him until September, as reported by Toni Juanmarti. Araujo will miss the beginning of the 2024-25 season and may remain with Barcelona despite transfer speculation.

Barcelona to be without Pedri

Additionally, Barcelona will also start the season without Pedri. The 21-year-old midfielder was injured during Spain’s Euro 2024 match against Germany and will be out for at least a month, adding to the challenges for Hansi Flick and the team.
