Pedro is one step away from reaching the century mark in La Liga with FC Barcelona. If the striker plays this Saturday against Madrid, Barça fans will be able to boast that they’ve seen the Masia graduate play in La Liga 100 times. Pedro has played 99 games in the league in his career, his 100th could be against Barça’s old rival, Real Madrid.

A new challenge for Pedro

The player, who was the first to score a goal in all six official competitions in one year, is on the verge of another historic feat: playing 100 games for FC Barcelona in La Liga.

Clásicos have been defining matches for Pedro. The Spaniard is the only player in the team to have scored on Madrid in the three major competitions: Liga, Cup and Champions League.

28 goals in 99 games

Pedro made his debut under Frank Rijkaard on January 13, 2008. Barça, who were playing Murcia, won the match 4-0. From that point on, the Spaniard has consistently improved. In his four years with the first team, the striker has scored 28 goals in the Liga. It would be a fitting reward for Pedro to celebrate a goal on his 100th match in La Liga.
