Barcelona winger Pedro Rodriguez will be out of action for 10 days after pulling a muscle in his leg during Tuesday’s 1-0 World Cup qualifying victory in France, his club said on Wednesday.

Pedro scored the winning goal before being substituted for club team-mate Cesc Fabregas in the 76th minute.

His injury means he will miss this weekend’s clash with Celta Vigo in La Liga and perhaps the next game as well.

“Pedro will miss the match this Saturday against Celta and he’s doubtful for next weekend’s match against Mallorca,” said Barcelona in a statement.

In between, the Spanish league leaders travel to France to take on Paris Saint-Germain in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final on Tuesday.

Pedro, however, was already suspended for that clash.AFP
