According to Xavi, the players thought that the game was easy after they took the lead 1-0, and that they were destined to be in the final. However, their opponents, Betis, dominated them during the second half, which ultimately cost them the game.

Xavi noted that the team’s struggles could be attributed to the presence of young players on the team and a lack of mentality. He also pointed out that the team has been lacking since the World Cup break, and that they didn’t know how to defend well on the day of the Metropolitano.

“We haven’t been mature in the game. We’ve been lacking since the World Cup break. We don’t know the reasons why it’s happening to us, perhaps it’s that there are young players in the team.”
