Pedro: Celtic will be difficult opponents

The 25-year-old is well aware of the dangers posed by Neil Lennon's side, but is confident the Blaugrana can make it three Champions League wins out of three
Pedro says Barcelona will have their work cut out against SPL champions Celtic on Tuesday.

The pair occupy the top two positions in Group G, with six and four points respectively, and having watched The Bhoys record a 3-2 victory over Spartak Moscow in the last round of fixtures, the winger is well aware of the quality they possess.

“It's important to achieve a good result," he told reporters at a press conference.

"They're a very difficult opponent, they play nicely and counter quickly. We're at home and it's important to remain in a good position in the group."

Tito Vilanova's side have been struck down with a defensive crisis in recent weeks, but despite shipping four goals in their 5-4 win over Deportivo La Coruna on Saturday, the 25-year-old is confident they have sufficient depth to cope.

“We have important players injured, especially in defence. However, I think Tito [Vilanova] is doing very well, with others filling those positions. We hope to continue with the good results,” he added.

The Spaniard also spoke of his happiness at Camp Nou and stated his desire to remain at the club for years to come.

“Each season we must fight to play and luckily I have played a lot of games. I am happy in the team and I hope to continue in this direction," he concluded.
