Player to watch: Pedro

As it stands, no player has scored more goals, or registered more assists than Pedro in Brazil's top flight. In fact, the former Fiorentina forward has at least four more direct goal involvements than every other player in the league.

In his last 13 appearances across all competitions, Pedro has an impressive return of 10 goals and six assists. He will fancy his chances against one of the league's best defences.
