Pedro Rodriguez hailed Barcelona’s start to the defence of their League title, but denied that La Liga is just a two-horse race.
Barca ran out 7-0 winners in Week 1, with Pedro netting twice in the convincing performance for last year’s champions.
“It was the best way to start,” the forward reflected to reporters afterwards.
“With a win and by playing well. The road is long, but if we continue along this line than we will be fine.
“We are recovering our physical shape and the pressure that we may have lost in recent years.”
Pedro struggled in front of goal last season for the Catalans.
“In attack we all like to score. This is way forward and I hope to have more goals than last year to help my team.
“The season has just begun, we must go step by step. By playing well, we will win games.”
The new No 7 was asked of the League’s domination by Barca and Madrid.
“They are two very strong teams who are very good, but there are places where it is very difficult to win and you have to go game by game.”
