Barcelona suffered a huge blow in the Champions League follwoing their draw against Inter Milan but Pedri has urge the team to stay focus ahead of the El clasico.

Barcelona midfielder Pedri has urged the Spanish team to move on from disappointment as they prepare to face Real Madrid in the La Liga.

The Spanish team’s hope to qualify for the Champions League round of 16 is in doubt following a 3-3 draw against Italian side Inter Milan.

The Spaniard stated that the Champions League result is not what was expected from them but insists they need to approach the El Clasico in the best way.

“We were dealt a hard blow in the Champions League,” Pedri told media in an interview.

“It’s not the result we expected. After a game like that you think about many things that you could have done better. We need to move on. We need to approach the Clasico in the best possible way.

“It’s a beautiful game for us. Seeing as we couldn’t give a good result in midweek to our fans, we hope we can do so in the Clasico.

“But we have to change our mindset as quickly as possible ahead of El Clasico.”

Barca will be eliminated from the Champions League group stages for a second straight season if Inter win any of their two remaining games.

Barcelona manager Xavi Hernandez has shifted the mind of his player off the Champions League game and as they have to focus on the league.

“He [Xavi] tells us that we have lost an opportunity that for us was very important which was the Champions League,” Pedri added. “Now we have LaLiga left and we are first and we want to continue in that position.

“It’s a very important game for LaLiga.”

Barcelona are on the same points level with Real Madrid after eight games, with both sides still unbeaten in LaLiga.

The Catalan giants boast the best attack and defence in LaLiga, having scored 20 goals and conceded just one.

“We know that if we are at our level and give our best, we can calmly take the game,” Pedri said. “That is what we have to do, to go there with maximum enthusiasm to get it done.”
