The tie that prevents Xavi from “sleeping”

In the numerical superiority for half an hour, Barcelona failed to beat Sevilla (1-1) on Wednesday. A result that upsets Xavi, who is satisfied with the performance of his players and does not consider it equivalent at its fair value.

Barcelona still does not take off. Three days after their victory against Elche, the Blaugrana were put on probation by Sevilla (1-1) despite the last half-hour they spent in numerical superiority after Jules Conde’s expulsion. With just one success in the last four games, the Catalans are stagnant in seventh place two blocks from fourth behind Rayo Vallecano (they could be four points behind the top four if Atletico win in Granada on Wednesday).

“It will be hard for me to sleep because we should have won”

This upsets Xavi who sees real progress in the game, not being rewarded at its fair value, he said. “This Barcelona is close to the person we want, to be representative and brave, entrust the technician at the end of the meeting. He is on the right track. It will be difficult for me to sleep because we should have won. They were able to calm things down, it is a veteran team, They know what they’re doing and do a good job tactically.”

“The point doesn’t serve us, and worst of all, it’s the result, it still suffers from the former Spanish midfielder. The feelings are very good, but we wanted the three points to enter the qualifying positions in the league. Champions. We will. Try next year.”

He added: “We lost two points, and deserved to win, even when we were 11 against 11, I saw Barcelona with character, that’s what we want and the team was good in high pressure, recovering and handling the ball. We competed very well despite the draw.”
