Every single objective for Barcelona that is left this season requires a step-by-step progression. In La Liga, for instance, as long as Barcelona win their own games, they can only see the changes game by game. Similarly, even in the Champions League, Barcelona can only focus on one opponent at a time.

That is the only way in which the Catalan giants can possibly end up doing anything of note by the end of the campaign. However, as grim as things can look sometimes, hope is what keeps people alive. Even for a team as big as Barcelona, something as insignificant as hope can make a world of difference.

Thus, when talking to some fans through an interactive app, as highlighted by SPORT, Barcelona midfield star Pedri was asked some hopeful questions.

First, and perhaps most eye-catching, was the question about who would be Pedri’s ideal opponent in a hypothetical Champions League final. To this, the Canary Islander replied:

“Barça-Manchester City. Although a Barça-Real Madrid final would also be fine.”

Going even further, Pedri was asked about his own confidence in Barcelona potentially winning the Champions League this season: “We are Barça. It’s very complicated, but of course we can.”

The Barcelona superstar was also asked about updates on his current recovery. Having been injured early on in March, the recent reports have suggested his recovery has been going really well and there is a fair chance he could end up featuring against Paris Saint-Germain sooner than expected:

“There is no specific date, but at the moment everything is going very well in the recovery.”

Another important question that Pedri was asked was about revealing his opinion on who the best Barcelona player this season has been. For this, the former Las Palmas starlet gave two names instead of one:

“It’s difficult to answer, but I’ll stay with the youngest, Pau Cubarsi and Lamine (Yamal).”
