Pedro: more goals than ever

Sandra Sarmiento

Pedro has scored 16 goals so far this season and established a new personal record. Since he joined the Barça youth academy, he had never managed this total in a season.

He’s getting better all the time and on Saturday against Malaga he celebrated his 50th first team game with yet another fantastic goal. He always seems to pop up when he’s most needed and once again he was on hand to open up the game. He’s now scored 16 goals, putting him second in the Barça goal ranking - which isn’t bad for a player not considered a striker! A surprising situation, even for Pedro.

Barça Atlètic, 16 goals

Under Pep Guardiola with Barça B, the Canary Island born forward scored 6 goals and made a vital contribution to promotion to Second B. Last year, Pedro alternated appearances with Barça Atlètic, managed by Luis Enrique, with his appearances in the first team. It was his most fruitful season to date – a total of ten goals that helped the team maintain their play-off aspirations until the last game. In the 2006/07 season, Pedro scored 4 goals with Barça C.


Although Pedro is right-footed, he is happy using both feet and demonstrates this by scoring with both left and right. This season he has scored 10 goals with his right foot, 5 with his left and one header. The Abu Dhabi goal. The goal that gave Barça the World Club Cup title.

Second in the goal ranking

A fantastic average. Pedro has gone down in the history books for scoring in every possible competition. He’s already scored one more goal than Ibrahimovic and only needs 8 more to equal the leading scorer in the team and in the league – Leo Messi.
Pedro: more goals than ever
Surprised by his goal tally
Pedro was a guest at Barça TV after the match against Malaga. When asked about his goal scoring feats, Pedro modestly explained: “Maybe I’m lucky or maybe it’s down to my team-mates who make my work much easier. I hope the run continues but that’ll be difficult”.
