The 19-year-old scored's goal has now been dubbed as similar to the trademark goals of legendary striker Lionel Messi, who displayed a similar style at Camp Nou before leaving to join Paris Saint-Germain last year.

"It's a crazy sensation listening to these fans. This stadium is amazing. Every time I saw a leg in front of me, I just jinked. When I made the last jink and shot, I knew I had it. I knew it was a goal," Pedri told reporters.

Barca is level on 57 points with Sevilla, which slipped to fourth, and third-placed Atletico Madrid but with a game in hand, having played 29 matches. Real Madrid is top with 69 from 30.

Following this win, Barcelona boss Xavi Hernandez lauded Pedri's 72nd-minute goal and also was pleased that his team is now 2nd in the La Liga table.

"Pedri is a superlative player. I always tell him to take his chances from outside the box. It's a player that I don't have a comparison for. He is unique with his talent both as a creator and as a finisher," Xavi told reporters.

"I am a positive person. I believe in work, effort, sacrifice and collective work. We are very good. We are supportive. Everyone runs and presses. With this base, the results have to come. We are in the best moment of the season," the Barcelona boss told Diario Sport.

Barcelona now turns their attention away from La Liga and to the Europa League. The Catalan club will be in Germany on Thursday night for the first leg of their quarter-final tie with Eintracht Frankfurt.
