“We deserved the win!” – Xavi explains the “differences” between Barcelona and Real Madrid after the recent El Clasico defeat

 

Barcelona manager Xavi insisted his side deserved the three points after losing 2-1 to Real Madrid.

 

What happens? A late goal from Jude Bellingham gave Barca an early lead over their rivals in a 2-1 defeat. The Blaugranas dominated for an hour but were unable to take control of the game and left their first Clásico of the season with nothing to show for their efforts.

Verdict: After the game, Barça coach Xavi said his side deserved the result.

“We dominated for 60 minutes, but that’s football.

You need 5-6 chances to score and they score 2-3 points.

This is the difference.

 

“We lacked efficiency.

“What I suggested worked well, we were calm and patient…

Maybe it’s an exaggeration, but I sat on the bench and felt we deserved to win.”

Big picture: Defeat leaves Barcelona four points behind Madrid after 11 games.

Although they had a draw in three games against Los Blancos, this defeat was their first win of the season.

 

Now what?

Barcelona travel to Anoeta to host Real Sociedad next weekend.
