Barça beat Girona with a goal thanks to a good pressing. Pedri’s effort at the start of the play is key, with a high intensity sprint.

Girona decided to continue playing with short passes which allowed them to keep possession but having to drop back to the goal line. In that situation instead of playing a long ball, they tried another short pass, losing the ball.

Frenkie de Jong gives the ball to Pedri who turns very quickly switching the play.

The ball reaches Jordi Alba and Girona makes the mistake of not defending the far post, nobody follows Frenkie de Jong and Pedri.

Jordi Alba crosses and Gazzaniga tries to block the ball but fails and Pedri scored the goal to win the match.
