Pedro Rodriguez, who is a winger for FC Barcelona, issued a warning about being overconfident in the next UEFA Champions League match against AC Milan. He acknowledged in a press conference (published by the Barca website) that AC Milan has players that are great. 

Pedro warned that the match may be tough for FC Barcelona and went as far as to say that La Blaugrana will have to play "really well" in this match. Pedro added his voice to that of Barca coach Pep Guardiola, who said that a one-goal win against La Rossoneri will not be enough to advance to the semi finals.

Pedro concluded his press conference by saying he wants to help Barca but that he "lacks coolness in front of goals," a remark comparing his current season to the previous ones.

Pedro and Guardiola recognize FC Barcelona has their work cut out for them in this Tuesday's UCL quarterfinal. The scoreless draw at San Siro rose the stakes for both teams.

FC Barcelona has to score with two goals and higher if they aspire to advance to the UCL semifinals. If there is one goal by Barca or an AC Milan victory, La Rossoneri advances.
