Suarez's first goal boosted Barcelona - Pedro
Barcelona attacker Pedro has voiced his delight with Luis Suarez's first goal for the club in their 4-0 Champions League win over APOEL on Tuesday.
The Uruguay international had yet to find the net for his new club in an official game since his summer transfer from Liverpool, but he opened his Barcelona account at last after 27 minutes of play.
Lionel Messi netted the side's remaining three goals to take his tally in European club football's elite competition to 74 and Pedro was equally pleased to see the Argentine become the Champions League's all-time top scorer.
"Messi's record and Suarez's first goal mean a lot to the team," Pedro told reporters.
"It's a great joy, a confidence boost - there's lots of harmony. It's really what we want for the team: to be united. Everybody is after the same objectives.
"We are playing at a high level now and we hope to keep that rhythm for the upcoming weeks and into the new year as well.
"We started the season tentatively somehow but now we are doing well physically and emotionally and have confidence. We want to stay on this path.
"The team is in great shape right now, in all aspects, and it would be great to continue like this until the end of the season."
