Panathinaikos 0-3 Barcelona: Pedro Fires Blaugranas To Knockout Stages

The Greek side were never really able to threaten the Blaugranas and the Spaniards cruised to a comfortable away win to book their ticket for the knockout stages.

Barcelona have secured qualification for the knockout stages following their 3-0 away win over Panathinaikos. The Catalans failed to really impress in the first half, but a single Pedro strike was enough to send them into the lead. Lionel Messi doubled his side's lead after the break before Pedro doubled his personal tally. Panathinaikos were unable to fight back and had to settle for a loss that means the end of their European campaign.

The Spanish champions started the match the better side of the two and dominated play in the opening stages of the game without really creating any serious chances.

The story is too old to be commented.
