Lazio winger Pedro is close to hitting some important career milestones ahead of the match against Udinese.
As reported by Italian newspaper Corriere dello Sport (via LazioNews24) earlier today, tonight’s match against the Bianconeri will be his 600th appearance across all competitions with teams from Europe’s top five leagues (split between Barcelona, Chelsea, Roma and Lazio).
Pedro is also close to scoring his 100th goal in Europe’s top five leagues. The Spanish veteran has scored 58 goals in La Liga, 29 in the Premier League and 12 in Serie A. A goal against Udinese today would see him achieve both milestones in the same match.
The 2010 World Cup winner has been one of the most important players in coach Maurizio Sarri’s squad this season, being an experienced veteran with very strong technical and tactical abilities. He has scored eight goals and provided five assists in 32 appearances across all competitions this season, being one of Lazio’s most important summer signings.
