A disturbing update was given to Badri's injury after Barcelona's exit from the European League

A new fitness update for Barcelona star Pedri was coming against the background of the club’s meeting with Eintracht Frankfurt, and it is completely related to the news for all those associated with the club.

Late goals by Sergio Busquets and Memphis Depay, in turn, were left to be more than a consolation, as Barcelona were expelled from the Europa League in frankly embarrassing fashion.
