Pedri and Joao Felix duo is still a Dream


Joao Felix and Pedri combo still remains a dream. They have not shared the pitch together as of now due to Pedri’s injury situation.

Nevertheless, the rapid and simple adjustment of practically every significant acquisition made during the previous summer transfer window. Ilkay Gundogan, Oriol Romeu, Felix, and Cancelo—has somewhat mitigated this bad luck with injuries.

Joao Felix and Pedri cannot yet be fielded together by Xavi.

Xavi might have fielded a side that was even more dominant on the pitch than what he has so far this season if he had all these guys at his disposal.

Barcelona head coach has still not been able to play two players who can potentially create a very good partnership on the pitch, i.e., Pedri and Joao Felix.

Joao Felix, who plays both as a winger and on the edge of the midfield square for Barcelona, has been utilising a hybrid style of play. In his eight club games, he has already contributed three assists and three goals. Solidifying his place in Xavi’s starting lineup.

But if Pedri had been there, his performances would have been much more excellent. Because they can both dribble and short pass well. Playing together with Joao Felix may greatly improve passing accuracy and playing between the lines.

Xavi’s crowded midfield

However, with six players covering four positions, Xavi will still need to make extensive rotations. Even if he plays both Joao Felix and Pedri in a four-man midfield. Throughout the season, Gavi, Gundogan, Romeu, De Jong, Pedri, and Felix will all require minutes, while Fermin Lopez has also been establishing himself lately.
Pedri is hoping to be back on the pitch soon since he should fully heal from his most recent injury.

He can get his first minutes against Shakhtar Donetsk, and his inclusion will provide Xavi with another highly useful player in the squad.
