Pedro: City definitely the toughest test

Pedro has conceded that Barcelona face their toughest possible opponents in Manchester City on Tuesday.

The Blaugrana travel to England to face the Premier League outfit in the Last 16 of the Champions League tomorrow.

And the forward has admitted that it’s going to be a tough encounter against the Etihad team.

“I watch City when I can. I enjoy watching them play and when there's a team you know you're going to face, it's good to see what form they're in and analyse them,” he said in an interview with The Guardian.

“[City’s Jesus] Navas is more of a pure winger, going past people on the outside and then crossing – I'm a bit more about the diagonal run, then looking to shoot. But we have similarities too – we can play on both sides, we're very quick and we take people on.

“Jesús is having a great season. For a long time he was someone [who you thought] should be playing in a great side and I think now he is.

“You try to avoid the strongest teams [by winning the group] but we knew we could get them.

“There are some opponents you prefer, that's the truth. Maybe this way we will be even more focused than ever, though, because we know how difficult it is.

“[Is this the strongest team you could have drawn?] Definitely.”
