Pedri left the Sanchez Pizjuan on crutches on Saturday but made a miracle recovery to start Barcelona's Copa del Rey semifinal win over Sevilla at Camp Nou on Wednesday.

"If you'd told me I would make the came and we would turn the tie around, I wouldn't have believed you," said Pedri, who played 89 minutes as Barça won 3-0 (3-2 on aggregate) to make the cup final.

After beating Sevilla twice in four days, first in the league, Pedri added: "Both in La Liga and in this game we pressed high, won back lots of balls and the result reflected what we did on the pitch."

Dream come true

Pedri's in his first season at Barcelona and it will be his first cup final with the club. "Winning the Copa del Rey is a dream, I still have a lot to fulfil and I hope that will happen with Barça."

With a big grin on his face, Pedri struggled to say much more, explaining hat he's "the adrenaline of the moment is still running through me."
