By participating in the 72nd game of the season, Pedri ties Bruno Fernandes record
In these games, Pedri has represented Barcelona and Spain.
Pedri has been named to Spain’s starting lineup for the semi-final match against Japan at the Tokyo Olympics, equaling the record for most games played in a season with 72.
Before Tuesday, August 3, Bruno Fernandes had the record alone, but he will now have to share it with Pedri.
The youngster will remember his first season as a Barcelona player, in which he played 37 games in LaLiga Santander, six in the Copa del Rey, two in the Supercopa de Espana, and seven in the Champions League, as well as 20 matches for Spain, split between the under-21s and senior squad at the European Championship and the Olympics.
If Pedri avoids injury, he will tie Bruno Fernandes for the most games played in a season, with 73, since he will either contest the final or the third/fourth-place playoff in Tokyo.
Barcelona manager Ronald Koeman will almost certainly give the midfielder some time off before the new season begins, allowing him to recover his fitness and disconnect from the sport for a while.
