ESPN FC's Sid Lowe says Pedro has proven he can play an important role at Barcelona despite lacking the talent of his superstar teammates.

Barcelona were defeated by Fiorentina 2-1 in their third match of the International Champions Cup at the weekend. Luis Suarez scored the Blaugrana's only goal, despite La Liga's champions attempting 13 shots with eight on target.

Luis Enrique cannot be too impressed after leading his team to only one victory in four matches. Although results don't matter in preseason, conceding an average of two goals per match is never a good sign.

Barcelona based their success last term on their effectiveness...
