Barça midfielder Pedri is under no illusions about the the task that lies ahead for the team on Wednesday against Inter Milan, a game that Xavi's side really need to win to boost their hopes of making it out of the group stages of this season's Champions League. "We have to improve a lot of things but the game against Inter is a final," said the teenager before adding: "We are calm because we know we have the quality to do it."
Pedri also touched on the important role of the fans in his appearance before the press at the Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper: "I don't doubt for a minute they will be there to support us and we will move forward together."
