Pedro confident of Super Cup success

Barcelona forward Pedro says he cannot wait to get the new season underway and he sees the Spanish Super Cup against Real Madrid as the perfect way to kick-off the new campaign.

The Spanish champions travel to the Santiago Bernabeu to face their fierce rivals in the first-leg of the Super Cup on Sunday, August 14 before hosting the Copa Del Rey champions in the return leg at the Camp Nou the following week.

Although Pedro admits that the games against their arch rivals will be tough, he is confident that the Blaugrana can get one over Jose Mourinho’s side at the first time of asking this season and add another piece of silverware to the trophy cabinet.

He told the club’s official website: “Whenever we play against Real Madrid the matches are very complicated and really tense. We’re starting the season with a tough test, but I’m convinced that the team will respond. We have another important challenge ahead and we’ll go into it with the utmost enthusiasm.”
