“This was a match where we were considered winners and the club faced a difficult opponent. The team complicated themselves. We were not effective enough to win comfortably. best”.
“We deserved to win 4-1 or 5-1. But this was one of the most physical matches since I led Barca. Overall, I’m happy.”
In addition, Xavi also updated the situation of Joao Felix, who left the field in the 75th minute. He confirmed that Felix was not injured and could be ready to play El Clasico this weekend.
