Pedri ahead of Inter clash: “Xavi asks us to score more goals and to get into the box.”

Barcelona are set to face Inter Milan in the fourth round of the Champions League group stages, with kick-off scheduled at 9pm local time this evening.

In his pre-match interview that appeared on Marca, Pedri discussed the importance of the fixture:

“I face it like a final. It’s a very important match that can determine part of the season and we’re playing for almost everything. We hope to advance from the group. They are a tough team and they play on the counter. The quality is immense.”

The 19-year-old revealed the responsibilities given to the midfield by Xavi:

“Xavi asks us to score more goals and to get into the box. The other day I scored because I was in the right place, we are working on it. The ideal scenario would be to score early, but we know it’s complicated. They keep a lot of players in their box.”
