Pedri continues to take steps forward at Barça and against Elche he was once again one of the best of the team. In defense he was very active, he moved well between the lines and was surely the best in the center of the Barca field
Pedri González follows giving steps of giant with the FC Barcelona and with alone 18 years has turned into titularísimo for Ronald Koeman. The presence of the Canarian in the eleven of the Barça no longer argues and the ex of The Palms is definitely one of the best midfield players that have the culés. This Wednesday against the Elche went back to shine in attack, although it was in defence where more praises carried by his enormous work.
In the first part, the Tenerifean played in the 4-3-3 like interior and was not at all badly. Inside the mediocrity that went the Barcelona in the first 45 minutes, the one of Tegueste was of the best and of the little salvable. It tried to connect between lines with the forwards, although it did not achieve it in too many occasions looked for to play with dynamism and no could him reproach at all in any moment.
But the Barcelona was not working and therefore in the rest Koeman decided to change of system and put a 4-2-3-1 with Leo Messi in the mediapunta and Pedri and Frenkie of Jong in the double pivote. This demanded that the Canarian worked a lot of more in defence and that exerted another entirely distinct role. Luckily, as it has done whenever it has touched him play of mediocentro, the international Sub-21 Spanish surrendered wonderfully.
The mediapunta was a pivote genial and left clear that has a much more powerful physicist of what resembles simple sight. Besides, it keeps on being surprising like a player of alone 18 years with a body that is far to be of elite can be so decisive in defence. It is tremendously intelligent to the hour to plant and against the ilicitanos remained to a recovery to equalise his record in what it goes of League.
Pedri, key in the midfield of the Barça and in the 2-0 of Messi
In total, the Tenerifean recovered 10 balloons, only one less than against the Athletic Club on 31 January in the triumph of the blaugrana in the Camp Nou by 2-1. It was a masterclass of the '16' tácticamente speaking, that surely was the best mediocampista of the Barça, or at least the more regulate. Frenkie Of Jong left more footprint that he by his brilliant driving and assistance in the 2-0 of Messi, but the one of Tegueste was surely more important in the game of the team.
Besides, the ex canterano of The Palms was precisely the one who recovered the spherical and delivered it to him to the Dutch so that it began the jugadón that finish with the so much of Messi. An action more than the a lot of that did along the meeting, especially of the second part. The Canarian plays, does to play, works, asks it, arrives to the area, holds it, steals... In summary, is all what a big midfield player has to be and the best of everything is that recently that fulfilled the majority of age. The present and the future are his and the Barcelona has luck to be able to enjoy it.
