Pedri thinks Barca could reach the Champions League final this season

2 Min Read

The squad that Pedri believes will play Barcelona in this year’s Champions League final has been announced.

In the quarterfinals, Barcelona takes on Paris Saint-Germain, led by Luis Enrique, their former teammate and manager. If they defeat PSG, they will advance to the finals by facing the victor of Atletico Madrid vs. Borussia Dortmund.

Real Madrid, Manchester City, Bayern Munich, and Arsenal are in the opposite half of the draw. Man City plays Real, while Bayern plays Arsenal.

Pedri is certain that his team will go to the Champions League final, and he has even made a prediction on their June 1 opponent at Wembley Stadium.

Although he supports Manchester City to advance to the London championship game, he relishes the thought of facing Real Madrid.

“What do I think will be the UCL final? Barca-City. Although, Barca-Madrid won’t be bad either,” he said.

“We are Barca. It’s very complicated, but of course we can win it. I see the Barcelona youngsters with confidence and a lot of desire in the Champions League.”

After an incredible season last year, Man City is the current holders of the Champions League. They won their first Champions League championship, defeating Inter Milan 1-0.

The Blues are one of the favorites to win it all because they are undoubtedly in the stronger half of the draw.

Barca hasn’t advanced to the championship game since winning their fifth Champions League trophy, defeating Juventus 3-1, in the 2014–15 campaign.

Pedri, who has participated in 24 games across all competitions this season, is presently unable to play due to a thigh issue, but he plans to get well soon.

“I hope to return very soon. I’m mentally very good, actually. The recovery is going very well and I’m just thinking about coming back and enjoying.”
