Barcelona's Pedro sidelined with ankle injury

FC Barcelona forward Pedro Rodríguez will miss next week's trip to FC Viktoria Plzeň after being ruled out for a fortnight with an ankle injury sustained during the win at Granada CF.

FC Barcelona will be without Pedro Rodríguez for their UEFA Champions League Group H match at FC Viktoria Plzeň on 1 November.

Initial tests suggest Pedro – who has scored three times in 14 appearances in all competitions for Barcelona this term – strained ankle tendons during Tuesday's 1-0 Liga win at Granada CF and will be out for two weeks. The attacker came off after 56 minutes as the Blaugrana returned to the top of the table thanks to Xavi Hernández's free-kick.

Josep Guardiola's team beat Plzeň 2-0 on matchday three and will be hoping for another three points when the teams meet again at Eden Stadium next Tuesday.
