Barcelona will play the final after defeating Real Sociedad 3-2 in a penalty shootout after the game ended 1-1.
(AP Photo/Jose Breton)BARCELONA – It’s no coincidence that Pedri González conjures up those flashes of exquisite playmaking brilliance that Barcelona fans have been longing for since the days of Andrés Iniesta.
Like Iniesta, Pedri is silky smooth with the ball on his feet, with his dribbling and passing in tight spaces.
Pedri has scored three goals this season, but it is his passing and footwork with the ball that has set him apart.
Twice this season, Pedri has produced no-look flicks with the back of his heel to roll the ball behind to set up Lionel Messi for goals.
