The FC Barcelona seems to have esquivado a bad news. Pedri González, as it did it Ansu Fati, lit the alarms in Saint Mamés after having asked the change during the extra time. The midfield player, accused by the physical requirement of the duel, finished very tired and fatigado. The good news is that it does not expect that his change was due to an injury.
In fact, Xavi Hernández has confirmed it in back statements to the party: "Pedri does not seem that have something important. We will see Ansu, that was affected". It was, however, a big hit for the Barcelona, place Pedri was being one of the most important players in the meeting, showing that it always is for the team and that, in spite of his youth, can be a differential player.
Pedri Was to title for the first time after lesionara to finals of September, against the Benfica, and the physical effort (and tiredness!) It finished happening him bill to the player. The midfield player saw forced to look to the bench and ask the change after touching , with samples of pain, the backside of the leg. It will be subjected to proofs to determine if there is some mishap, but seem to be only a fright.
In any case and waiting for that pedri leave good news, is worth it to stand out that, although it was very hit along the party, his impetus and command from the centre of the field were not sufficient to surpass to the bilbaínos in Saint Mamés, but go that it tried it... It was he, precisely, the one who forced the extention in the last played of the statutory time, minutes after the Athletic put the 2-1. The one of Tegueste hunted a balloon in the area after a refuse, the enchufó and nailed it in the network of Agirrezabala.
Pedri, key for the Barça... Also with Xavi
The ex of the Palms assumed more responsibility in the circulation of the balloon and commissioned , at all times, to improve the context of the team. Likewise, in Saint Mamés showed that it can be a silent leader for the team culé, especially in parties that 'stagnate' so easily as against the Athletic. A good news, between all the blows for the Barça, is that Pedri has showed to have good chemistry with Ferran Torres in the field, surely by his relation in the selection of Spain.
