FC Barcelona: Xavi back against his players after the surprise defeat against Cadiz

Here is a new defeat which is a task for Barça de Xavi, and which will probably not help the complicated relationship of the moment with the Catalan supporters. This Monday, at the end of the 32nd day of La Liga, FC Barcelona lost by the smallest margin on their lawn against Cadiz (0-1), after a very disappointing match. The continuation after this advertisement After a soporific first period, where the Blaugranas, in search of redemption after the rout in the quarter-finals of the Europa League against Eintracht Frankfurt (0-3) in this same Camp Nou, almost never knew how to create danger on the Andalusian goal, Lucas Pérez punished Marc-André ter Stegen and his close team just after the break. At the end of the game, the culé club even came closer to 0-2 than to equalizing. Xavi does not digest the lack of realism Inevitably, at the end of the meeting, the Barça coach did not appear all smiles in front of the media. “Personally, I’m angry, we didn’t play well, we didn’t know how to attack, we weren’t at our level. We make mistakes that shouldn’t be made. We have to be a more competitive team than that, he explained at a press conference. They had a great defensive game. We generated enough chances to get the three points but we didn’t make them. We need to be self-critical, analyze what we are doing wrong and change the negative dynamic as soon as possible.” “Of course, the absence of players like Pedri and Araújo is noticeable, but that’s no excuse. It’s a shame that the Grada de Animación (group of supporters, editor’s note) didn’t come because we needed them, but once again the public rose to the occasion, they always do, and that is important, then underlined the former Blaugrana No. 6, before concluding. We have to show a lot more character. We have lost a final now and there are still seven to go. I consider myself the most responsible person and I will talk to the players. We can’t let the Champions League slip away next year.” The objective is clear, because now, the title of champion of Spain reaches out more than ever to Real Madrid.
