Barcelona midfielder Pedri, after defeating Galatasaray (2:1) in the second leg of the 1/8 finals of the Europa League, said that he had never played at such a stadium before.
“We didn’t expect the Camp Nou to be just a goalless draw, so we knew that it would not be easy here with such baggage. And I have never played before in any stadium where the stands put you under such pressure!
At first I thought of hitting with all my might, but then I hid and made a false swing until I saw the place where it was worth breaking through. That’s all I remember now. I’m lucky that I don’t have to think too often on the field – everything happens by itself, ”Pedry was quoted as saying by the UEFA press service.
In the first meeting, a draw (0:0) was recorded, so Barcelona advanced to the quarterfinals. The draw will take place on March 18.
