Pedri talks Messi, Ronaldo, Steph Curry, Yamal, Cubarsi and Barcelona’s UCL dreams

Barcelona will focus on trying to get all their injured players back from injury as they take on PSG in the round of 16 of the UEFA Champions League in just over a week.

The first-leg is scheduled to take place at the Parc des Princes, with the return fixture set to kick off at the Olympic Montjuic Stadium a week later.

Frenkie de Jong is expected to be back in time for the first-leg, but may not start. Pedri, on the other hand, may or may not be a part of the squad list. Barcelona will certainly not want to risk him, and have him ready to start the second leg.

Speaking about his recovery, Pedri wrote on The Residency, “There is no specific date. But for now, everything is going well.”

Barcelona may not be the favourites to win the Champions League, but are certainly in contention in one way or another. And according to Pedri, the tournament could swing either way.

“We are Barça. It’s very complicated, but of course we can [win the UCL].”

“I see the Barcelona youngsters with confidence and a lot of desire in the Champions League,” he added.

Barcelona are placed on the comparatively easier side of the bracket in the UCL, and will face off against one of Borussia Dortmund or Atletico Madrid should they manage to qualify for the semi-finals.

On the other side are the likes of Manchester City, Real Madrid, and Bayern Munich. So as far as his prediction for the UCL is concerned, Pedri went with:

“Barcelona vs Man City. But a Barça vs Real Madrid final would not be bad either!”

He was also asked to pick out his best Barcelona performer so far this season, and went with the two breakthrough stars that are making the most noise right now: Lamine Yamal and Pau Cubarsi.

“Difficult to answer, but I will stick with the youngsters. Pau Cubarsi and Lamine Yamal.”

And of course, Pedri was asked to choose between Lionel Messi and…
