Spain broke the deadlock through Pedri's club and international teammate Ferran Torres in the 75th minute but were pegged back by Myrto Uzuni five minutes before time.
Olmo won it for La Roja in the last minute with a glorious curling finish into the top corner after a sublime cushioned touch from Jordi Alba.
But the goal doesn't happen without an outrageous bit of vision and execution from Pedri, who played a stunning pass over the top.
Pedri playing like a maestro that has been in the game for 15 years is not normal. To be a key player for Spain and Barça at 19 is not normal.- Stanley:pushpin: (@manlike_stan_) March 26, 2022

Aptly wearing the No.10 for the first time in Spain colours, the perfectly-weighted pass went right over the head of the full-back and matched the run of Alba.
You can't help but watch the pass and get serious Xavi and Iniesta vibes from Pedri, who is still only 19 years of age.
A lot of players would go for the easy pass to feet or backwards and sideways but it's not in the nature of Pedri, already a world-class creator and orchestrator.
When you see Pedri strut his stuff on the pitch, it's only normal to think we will be talking about him as one of the best midfielders in the game for a long time.
Barca and Spain have a gem on their hands and he could have been turning out for Real Madrid if Los Blancos hadn't rejected him TWICE after he was initially unable to train because of snow.
"I trained for three days and I think since they were playing the next day, they took me down with the B team to train and in the end, they told me that I didn't have the level to be there," the former Las Palmas youngster said in a recent interview for Cadena Cope's 'El Partidazo' show.
"But now I'm where I want to be. At first you don't like being rejected, but then it motivates you to think that if they didn't want you now you're going to work so that something else could come in the future.
"To whoever rejected me at Madrid, I would tell them that I'm enjoying myself at Barca."
