Barcelona got the better of Getafe in a game of a slight margin on Sunday night. Only one goal separated the two teams at full-time, and it was young Pedri who made the difference.

In the 35th minute, The Canary Islander sprinted into the opponents’ box and slammed Raphinha’s cross into the back of the net for his goal. He spoke to the media after the game, and here are the snippets from the same interaction.

The former Golden Boy winner first spoke about the importance of grinding out narrow wins and the skill the team was yet to develop on that front.

“We still have to learn how to kill off games. Regardless, these three points are very important.”

Barcelona temporarily take a six-point lead over Real Madrid with the result at Spotify Camp Nou, and Pedri commented on the same in his presser.

“As of right now, we’re leaders by 6 points. We’ll see what happens in San Mamés. The league title is our priority.”

After the Catalan derby, Barcelona travelled to Civitas Metropolitano to take on Atletico Madrid. They then went to Qatar for the Spanish Supercup before returning to Spain and playing Ceuta away. Sunday’s game was thus Barcelona’s first home game of 2022, about which Pedri said,

“These weeks have been very tough. We travelled and played a lot.”

The youngster then paid tribute to his captain and mentor Sergio Busquets who crossed the milestone of 700 games for the club.

“I want to congratulate Busquets for reaching 700 matches. It’s a massive achievement.”

In a rather strange and untimely revelation, Pedri spoke about the inspiration behind his trademark eye-mask celebration.

“The gesture in the goal celebration is dedicated to my cousin Abraham, who’s bald.”
