Pedro faces up to Barça task

Published: Tuesday 20 April 2010, 23.11CET
FC Barcelona goalscorer Pedro Rodríguez refused to make excuses for a 3-1 loss at FC Internazionale Milano which leaves the holders with it all to do when their UEFA Champions League semi-final concludes next week. "We couldn't really get into our rhythm tonight but that didn't have anything to do with the [coach] trip we had to make," said the striker, who scored after 19 minutes. "It's a pity that third goal went in as it makes things more difficult. It's going to be a very tough game next week but we'll be looking forward to it and you can be sure we'll be well prepared."
