Pedro struck late on in the 4-1 win.
He declared: "The goal has given me a lot of confidence. It's always important for a striker to score goals. I was having a pretty bad goalless streak, but I have to thank Lionel Messi for the pass he game me. I'm very pleased with the victory.
"I dedicated my goal to Abidal."
In reference to the low amount of goals he's scored this season: "My teammates have been helping me along the way. The most important thing is that I'm feeling much better on the pitch.
"I'm very pleased with my form and with how the team is playing.
"There are a lot of points still left in play and we'll fight until the end. We have to take it one step at a time."
