Pedro’s victor came as Messi was lining up another free kick, which initially rebounded off the wall and came back to Messi, whose second shot was saved by Beto, only for Pedro to put the ball in the roof of the net. “It’s a matter of continuity, of minutes, I am an ambitious player“. And if I go I will go with my head held high having always given everything. I want to play.
