Ferran Torres and Pedri still positive for COVID-19: They will miss Supercopa de Espana

Barcelona travel to Saudi Arabia for the Supercopa de Espana on Monday, but Ferran Torres and Pedri will not be on the plane.

The two players are still testing positive for COVID-19 and will be unavailable for the Blaugrana's Supercopa semi-final against Real Madrid on Wednesday, January 12.

Pedri would have been able to play if he had tested negative, but Ferran has still not been registered due to Barcelona's wage cap problems, following his move from Manchester City.

Araujo and De Jong will fly to Saudi Arabia

Ronald Araujo and Frenkie de Jong both sustained injuries during Barcelona's Copa del Rey tie away at Linares and missed this weekend's 1-1 draw against Granada in LaLiga Santander as a result, but they will both fly to Saudi Arabia with the team.

The Uruguayan centre-back is expected to be able to play with a splint on his hand, following the injury to Eric Garcia, who will be out for the next five weeks.
