Barcelona manager Xavi was ecstatic after the win, saying:
“I am very satisfied because I really like how we played. It is clear that winning conditions us, because otherwise we wouldn’t have confidence. Today we didn’t lose balls and the midfielders have understood their assignments very well. We have played better, but I am happy for the players because they have received a lot of unfair criticism and many players have freed themselves. It is a title against Madrid and we have to be very proud.” He also added “Leo’s departure was difficult to digest. But we are creating a team”
The win is a significant one for Barcelona, not only because they defeated their fierce rivals, but also because it was a statement of their strength and resilience as a team. The team will be looking to continue their winning form and build on this victory in the upcoming matches.
