PEDRI GONZÁLEZ OR EDUARDO CAMAVINGA? WHO IS BETTER?
The two extremely young and prominent talents in the world of football play for two of the biggest clubs in this world. Pedri and Camavinga have filled the hearts of Barcelona and Real Madrid fans with the hope of a great future. The fans of these two teams have experienced some of the best midfielders in their teams such as Luka Modric, Toni Kroos, Andres Iniesta and Xavi. The new generation has huge responsibilities on their shoulders as there is always a need for a hero.
Pedri Vs Camavinga:
1: Player Stats
Pedri and Camavinga are both of the same age and have provided similar results in the short time they experienced with their respective clubs. It would not be fair to compare them based on personal statistics at this point as they are very young and can have not yet reached their prime. Comparing them based on the best season they have had in their career until now. In this case they had good stats in 2020/21 season for their clubs.
It is clear that Pedri has better goal contributions as compared to Camavinga as he also plays as an attacking midfielder. However, the Frenchman Camavinga plays as a defensive midfielder and won’t often involve in every attack of the team. One thing we should note here is that Camavinga has much better defensive stats as compared to Pedri.
2: Titles Won
You don’t have a cabinet full of trophies at this age but these two players have already managed to win a few. The Spaniard won just one title with FC Barcelona as the recent years haven’t been too fruitful for them. However, the addition of Robert Lewandowski is changing the scene for Barcelona as they are back on track and are competing for big titles again.
On the other hand, Camavinga already has a lot of titles in his cabinet at a very young age. The player has more trophies than many prominent players out there and it would be easy to predict that by the end of his career he will have a huge trophy cabinet filled with League titles and European victories.
3: International Career
We can confirm for you that these 2 names will always be in the starting lineup for France and Spain in the future. Camavinga has not played a lot of matches for France as they already have a bunch of good talent available in the position. Regardless of that he already has an international title with France as he was part of the Nations League winning team.
Pedri had the most appearance for any player (73) in the club and international team. The critics of Euro 2020 termed Pedri as the best Spaniard on the pitch and some people termed him as ‘New Xavi’. The player contributed to Euro 2020 and the Tokyo Olympics but unfortunately, they couldn’t win. Despite having a young age Pedri’s contribution was great for his country.
The upcoming World Cup will be a big chance for both of them to make their name internationally. The French National team is much stronger as compared to the current Spanish Team. It would be hard to decide on a winner in this category as there is a whole career ahead for them with their country.

Who is the better player?
The FC Barcelona wunderkid has a lot more exprience than Camavinga. In the short careers, they have had Pedri has proved more beneficial for the team as he started with Barcelona much before the time Camavinga joined Real Madrid. We can predict the two players to have great careers in Spain as they play for the biggest rival club in the world.
The position in which Pedri play makes him ahead of Camavinga in the G/A contributions. Pedri will score a lot of goals and provide a beautiful assist for Barcelona while Camavinga will stop the other team’s attack like Casemiro did for Real Madrid when he used to play for them.
It is difficult to announce a winner between them at this moment, all we can say is that Pedri may be slightly ahead of Camavinga at this point. Anything can happen in the future and this status can change.
